    Can't get jailbroken ipad to update.. Unique issue, see inside

    So what makes this one unique?
    Prior to bringing the iPad to me, the previous owner had a tethered Jailbreak on 4.2.1 using Redsn0w.

    At some point he then tried to re-jailbreak it with GreenPoison rc6.1
    Which left it unbootable. It will not boot, even if I try to boot it tethered.

    I have tried several things to get it to update to 4.3.3..
    I have booted it into DFU with Redsnow.. No luck, I get error 3194.
    I have tried to rejailbreak it with Redsnow.. no luck, I tried to re jailbreak with Greenpoison, same issue...
    I have tried manually putting it in DFU and update.. nope.. Absolutly nothing will let me update it.

    Any thoughts guys?
    Thanks

    Stupid question, but at what state is it now, i.e. do you have 'connect to itunes logo' or just the 'Apple logo' Showing. or nothing at all...

    Currently it is stuck in the boot loop. You see the apple logo, then it restarts about every 3-5 minutes.

    Ok well, I made SOME progress.
    I got it to restore to a factory load of 4.2.1 using the TSS server in Tiny Umbrella.
    I still can't get it to update to 4.3.3, but I am sure I can get it to work eventually!!

    We have a guide to solving 3194 which is in the guides section. You need to follow that to get 4.3.3 on there. It's happening because your hosts is NOT pointing to Apple. It needs to to get 4.3.3. Check the guide and try it out.

    Well, to be honest, the poster obviously never even read the content of the question. So it is not really being helpful to post blind useless suggestions.

    If the poster had even glanced at what I posted, they would have known that I had obviously tried all of that. So all the poster was doing was padding their post count. Not being helpful.

    However, I managed to solve the problem. One I used the TSS server in TinyUmbrella to let me reinstall a non jailbroken copy of 4.2.1, I switched to OSX, I was working in windows... I switched to OSX and that allowed me to update to 4.3.3. So hopefully if someone runs into the same issue, this will help them solve their problem as well.

    Actually I had already checked that. This was not the case in my issue. Even after I re-installed 4.2.1, I moved to another PC Workstation on the domain I was at...This one has never been used to work on an iPhone or iPad, it was freshly imaged even. Brand new workstation... Even that one would not update the iPad to 4.3.3 from 4.2.1. I do not exactly know why, but the solution was once I repaired 4.2.1, was to use OSX and iTunes to update it. I had already tried with the borked JB'd 4.2.1 to update it to 4.3.3 and it would not from OSX.

    Clearing out my hosts file and making sure my activation traffic WAS going to apple's servers was one of my very first steps. I am a Network Administrator by trade.

    Thanks,

    Great attitude. I appreciate "unique" situations can be frustrating, but we try and be open, honest, friendly, and respectful in these forums. That encourages people to help, and besides that, it's just grown up.

    I'm somewhat of an expert myself. I know what a 3194 means. It means you are talking to a signing server which is not responding to a valid challenge. Specifically it means you are talking to Cydia or localhost, neither of which are returning a valid response to a challenge to supply 4.3.3 blobs.

    There are several ways to solve this, but the easiest is...

    If you clear all entries for gs.apple.com from your hosts, put the iPad into DFU mode (NOT USING ANY TOOL), and restore in iTunes to 4.3.3 it will work unless you have not followed one of the steps correctly. This is a foolproof system. Apple makes it simple for a reason. It's why iPads (and all other iDevices) cant be bricked.

    Only once you get the iPad restored with stock 4.3.3 should you use the latest redsn0w to jailbreak it.

    Hope you get it fixed.
