Hi all, I'm at my wits end with this so i'm forced to post for help
I purchased an ipad 1 with 4.2.1 firmware, I'm trying to get it on 4.3.3 via itunes, I've downloaded the 4.3.3 ipsw etc and when i try to restore in itunes i get the 3194 error, I've also tried with 4.3.2 ipsw also with the same problem.
I've tried a number of ways to overcome this, by editing the txt file in the system32/etc folder (the apple ip address is not showing)
I've tried to update with redsnow and managed to patch the 4.2.1 ipsw, get the ipad into dfu mode but then the ipad hangs on white screen while redsnow says "waiting for reboot", nothing happens (i've tried leaving it for hours)
I've also tried tiny umbrellla and cannot save any SHSH files.
all i want to do is end up with a jailbroken untethered ipad on 4.3.3 firmware.
