All i keep getting now is error 3194, nearly time to throw the white towel in i think
3194 means you are not following the tutorial correctly. Your hosts file is not pointing towards Apple servers and therefore iTunes cannot get valid SHSH Blobs for the restore process.

Follow step 2 again to the letter and try again.

I followed step 2 again and this is what i get when i open TU
READ THIS NOW
"Request SHSH from Cydia" is currently set.
This can cause issues if you are trying to save current SHSHs as Cydia is no longer able to reliably proxy SHSH requests.
Please change your setting in the "Advanced" tab and click the "Apply Changes" button or use the "Edit" menu to apply changes.
You currently have "Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit" set. If you are having issues restoring, you need to uncheck this box and "Apply Changes"
BE WARNED!! If you restore stock apple firmware, your baseband can and likely will be updated!
"Save all available SHSH" is checked
"When connecting a device, prefer my custom device name over the name set on the device" is checked
So i made sure both those options weren't checked and closed TU.
I still get error 3194, obviously i'm doing something wrong but can't work out what lol.
You pressed the Apply button like the message says?
Unless i'm going blind i can't see an Apply button. I just reopened TU and the settings have been saved from previously so both "Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit" and "Request SHSH from Cydia" are unchecked.
This is the name of the firmware iPad1,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw does that sound right or should i rename it perhaps?
Just to show you the settings and no Apply button.
Hello this is my first post. :)
I'm confused about the hardware dfu mode and redsnow enter_dfu ipsw. Thing is I have a working home button but I'm not confident of getting the dfu timings right, tried a couple of times didnt work. So, can I create the dfu ipsw with redsnow instead and restore in itunes? Doesnt redsnow put the device in dfu AFTER the restore but your tut says to put it into dfu mode before starting the restore. I have a jb ipad 2 on 5.1.1. Thanks.
Edit: Duh, I read the dfu mode for dummies again and it seems I have to start the restore with the regular ipsw after the initial steps fail and the ipad is in dfu mode. Is that right?
Well i finally got mine going but it wasn't the tutorial that fixed it :D
Hey I just jailbroke my iPhone 4s and I made a theme on CodeThemed.com and transfered it to my device it said the transfer was complete and open theme up in winter board but it not showing up there... Can someone please help me out!
Thanks for putting together such a useful thread, however, after following all of the instructions I'm still unable to restore my jailbroken "new" iPad. The iPad was running 5.1.1 and was jailbroken. It started acting funny and I don't really use the JB features so I wanted to restore to stock. Despite following the instructions on this post I still get error 1600/1601 every time I try to restore. Also, the device is totally stuck in DFU mode. I can't get it out no matter what I try and thus it is only recognized in DFU mode by Tiny Umbrella, Win 7, and iTunes.
Does anybody have any clues as to what I should do moving forward? Any help at all is appreciated and let me know what info to provide if you need more.
Thanks in Advance,
