hey!
i have a new iphone 5c, tried to jb it, got stuck with the apple logo.
by now it looks like it is in restore mode, the phone screen is black.
i had ios 7.0.1, itunes would just allow me to restore and upgrade to 7.1 (even though i am scared if this as a last step would work at all)
i have downloaded ios 7.0.4 and receive error 3194 when trying to restore.

in order to fix this error, i have deleted
74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com and
74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
from the host file.

i wanted to try tinyumbrella as a last idea, but i am really worried to make things worse. there are some old shsh blobs saved. the latest one is iphone 3gs 5.0.1

i am not sure if this matters, if i can delete this shsh blobs... dont find satisfying answers on the web.

so, thats where i am stuck now. i really do need my phone back asap.

if anyone can help me, it would be highly appreciated.

thank you!

You cannot install any firmware other than 7.1 on your phone. Apple has stopped signing all lower versions. Blobs are useless for your phone.

The Jailbreak Community
TinyUmbrella hasn't worked since iOS4 - it is an outdated tool.

It is likely you updated your 5C firmware via OTA which is why the jailbreak failed (There is a big warning about using the jailbreak on OTA updated devices posted in RED LETTERS on the evasi0n website)

Prior post is correct. You can only restore to 7.1 firmware for which there is no jailbreak.
