    Hi all,

    I have a 4s currently jb to 5.1.1. It started life as 6.1.3 (I have the blob for this), I have recently decided to upgrade to 8.1.2 but when I try and restore to 6.1.3 I keep getting errors 3194 or error 11. I have tried tiny umbrella, and iFaith doesn't seem compatible.

    Is there anything I can do to restore or is my phone destined to remain on 5.1.1 for the rest of its days.

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Thanks

    You cannot restore it to anything but what Apple is signing. At this time, that is iOS 8.2.

    Remove the line from your hosts file that contains gs.apple.com

    Using tiny umbrella has redirected to a spoofed apple server making you unable to restore through iTunes. Removing that line will fix your issues.

    Correct, make sure your hosts file points to apples servers.
    And then plug it in and hit restore.
    That will bring you to the latest ios versions.
    No way to restore or update to anything but the latest signed ios version.

    Stop using tinyumbrella, ifaith or any other programs besides itunes.
    Fix your hosts file or plug it to another computer with itunes and restore it.

    Hi, I tried that and now get error 3014.
    This is a copy of the host file
    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    # 127.0.0.1 localhost
    # ::1 localhost

    Are you pointing to an IPSW? If so, don't. Just plug it in while in recovery mode and let iTunes download and install the appropriate one.

    Do not click update.
    You're supposed to click restore like we told you 10 times above.
    RESTORE.
    if you're hosts file is messed up then use another computer with itunes to restore it.

    open http://gs.apple.com in your default browser. If you edited the HOSTS file correctly, it should redirect to Apple.
    If it opens cydia then your hosts is still messed up.


    Error 1004, 1013, 1638, 3014, 3194: These errors may be the result of the connection to gs.apple.com being redirected or blocked. Follow these steps to resolve these errors:
    Install the latest version of iTunes.
    Check security software. Ensure that communication to gs.apple.com is allowed. Follow this article for assistance with security software. iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues.
    Check the hosts file. The restore will fail if there is an active entry to redirect gs.apple.com. FollowiTunes: Advanced iTunes Store troubleshooting to edit the hosts file or revert to a default hosts file. See section "Blocked by configuration: (Mac OS X/Windows) > Rebuild network information".
    Try to restore from another known-good computer and network.
    If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.

    Make a new user account and restore it there.
