I am trying, unsuccessfully, to restore my iPhone 4 from recovery mode. When I attempt to restore through iTunes I get a message telling me the process cannot be completed because of an error 3194. There is no documentation or information on what this error means - and how to restore the phone when this message appears. Can anyone help?
This usually means you previosly used an iPhone hacking utility such as tinyumbrella, altering the hosts file on your computer, and blocking access to the apple server, gs.apple.com.
"Error 1004, 1013, 1638, 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.
