Upgrading from 4.3.5 to 5.0 keep getting 3194 error

I was at my wits end as I kept getting the same message 'Device not eligible for requested build'. Even for my iTouch, which I never did anything to. I never jailbroke any of my devices. I DID install TinyUmbrella (TU) to save my blobs back in July 2011 before they were going to stop saving them, but never jailbroke my device. Apparently, TinyUmbrella updates a file which directs iTunes where to look. (see links below). After removing the '#' mark in front of the address and saving it, I restarted my Mac to be on the safe side. And Viola ! Everything worked liked normal ! I was able to update to iOS 5. YAY !
I don't know if this will solve all of your problems, but it worked for me. NOTE: Depending on if you are on Snow Leopard or on Lion will determine what command you will need to key in at Terminal to update the file. They are different. You may have to Google to find the correct one if your screen comes up blank. Good Luck !

You CANNOT install 5.0 now. Only 5.0.1 is valid.

I am trying to upgrade ipad2 from 4.3.5 to 5.0.1 and i keep getting the error 3194 couldnt restore what ? I cant understand every video i watched they have the firmware of the original, so shall i download the 4.3.5 and then upgrade or what?
I am not jailbroken and i have no idea about umberlla blobs ,plz need help how to do this upgrade
This happened to me I was in 4.3.3 and wanted to go to 5.0.1. Go to DFU mode first then follow prompts to restore to version you like
Hi every body i read this on a yahoo questionar and i did it and it worked ,
I downloaded the tiny umberlla and then u will find in the middle of it a bottom called "advanced" click it and then UNCHECK THE BOX OF CYDIA HOST
I did it this way
N.B i dont have blobs or anything of that kind of stuff i just did it that way and it solved the problem instanly
I can't understand why this would help, your trying to update to an iOS that Apple is still signing, you aren't Jailbroken, so it should have been plain sailing!?

64GB wifi ipad2 iOS 7.0.6 (Jailbroken using Evasi0n) : 120GB iPod Classic (Now in Apple heaven as I left it in my trouser pocket in the washing machine BOO HOO!!) : AppleTV 2G iOS 5.0.2 (Jailbroken using seas0npass): iPhone 4S 64GB iOS 7.0.6 (Stock, so I can stream Sky Go) : iMac 27 (Living The Apple Dream!!)
Look i am not a professional at all in this but i think it's like a third party interfance it really worked with me
Plus i did it cuz i was afraid to delete any of the host stuff i read about and i saw videos on you tube ,it was the least invasive percedure to do just downloaded a 2.8MB tinyumberlla and unchecked the box and i went good thnx god
