iOS Firmware : iOS 5.1
You can Fix iTunes error 3194 on iOS 5.1.1 Update with 2 ways :
1. Manual Method:
Open your hosts file. On Windows, this would be C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/ and on Mac, you can reach there through Go->Go To Folder->and type /etc.
Once you have the hosts file open, at the end of the file, add this line:
Once you have appended the file with this line and saved it, restart your device and fire up iTunes for the restore. Hopefully, it would do the job!
2. Software – TinyUmbrella
If you think you are not good at tinkering with the hosts file, there is an alternative. But comparatively, both are same. For this method, you will have to download TinyUmbrella – works for both Windows and Mac. Once you have the software, connect your iPhone through USB. Fire up the software. Make sure iTunes is not open at this point of time.
There should be a Save SHSH button. TinyUmbrella will download SHSH Blobs from Cydia resources.
Now click on Start TSS Server button.
Check the Log tab. If you see ‘TSS Server Started!’ and ‘TSS Accepting Connections’ at the end of the Log, it means the work is done.
Try to open gs.apple.com. If it redirects you to Cydia, it means you are now set to do the custom firmware downgrade or restoration. Launch iTunes and restore to the stock or custom IPSW.
