Ive got an ipad 2 running 4.3.5 and i wanted to downgrade it to 4.3 so i can jailbreak it.
Thing is this error code "3194" keeps popping up when i try to restore ...

Deleting the apple server
Adding the Apple Server

You can't downgrade your iPad2 to iOS 4.3.3 to jail break it. Sorry, but you missed that window back in July 2011.
Unless you have saved iOS 4.3.3 SHSH blobs AND have a WiFi-only iPad2, your only option is to go to iOS 5 and wait (hope?) there's a jail break for iOS 5.
Hey Mickey I am curious about something in your reply above as I am having the 3194 error today http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-2-for...4-3-3-pls.html
You said "have a WiFi-only iPad2" ... does that mean that my wifi + 3G pad cannot restore 4.3.3 even though its the OS I have been running on this whole year to preserve my jailbreak ??? Even though I have the SHSH and everything ?
Well, this was old information. The jail breaking community has since updated the jail breaks so that those with GSM iPad2s (the AT&T model) CAN downgrade as long as they have SHSH blobs.
But, you have to create a custom firmware, per this thread: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacki...ak-thread.html
Read the whole thing, but my comment above refers to the paragraph titled "My iPad isn't new and I was previously jailbroken. Am I out of luck too?"
I'm also answering over in the thread you referenced, so, in the interest of (1) keeping your specific problem question focused in one thread and (2) not breaking the forum rules about double posting (cause this IS the third place you've posted about your problem, actually) - let's agree to stay in the thread you started.
So, go over here: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-2-for...4-3-3-pls.html. That's where I'll be.
