    Hello everyone! I recently came across this forum and I was impressed by the quality and quantity of information, as well as its very professional portrayed videos! Sadly, nothing seemed to have helped my particular problem.
    I am new to this forum thing, in fact, this is the only one I have participated in.
    Nonetheless, I will get straight to the point, after my sob story.

    Yesterday morning I had the idea to jailbreak my iphone 4 (Big mistake!) and little did I know what I was getting into. I spent my whole day from 07:30AM until now trying to get this thing to work. I downloaded an untethered firmware iOS version 4.3.3 (I used redsn0w first, then I switched to an older version of itunes and used sn0wbreeze (when I was trying to use an older version of the firmware (4.2.1))) and once I attempted to restore, I was given "error 3194". After wasting a whole day and encountering several other errors such as 2005, and 1601, I tried using a variety of programs from tiny umbrella to libusb ,iREB, Recboot, and iRecovery in order to absolve this problem. I was first trying to deal with the constant error coming up (3194) and I was stuck in restore mode. Then it progressed to an ongoing battle against error 2005 and 1601, and now, my iphone is now stuck on Pwnd DFU mode. I came to the realization that I can not fix this alone. So in my moment of necessitate any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

    First, if you've not saved SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.3, you cannot put that iOS version on your iPhone. Apple does not authorize that firmware any longer, not since the end of the summer.

    Take a look at this thread to better understand SHSH blobs: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24323-shsh-blobs-frequently-asked-questions-updated.html

    You didn't say which version you started with, but if you've never saved blobs, you can only upgrade, you cannot go down.

    Honestly, I don't know how you can fix your phone if a reboot doesn't put it back the way it was. You may have to restore it. Actually, your best bet is to visit our sister site at www.iPhoneForums.net. There's a bunch of iPhone experts there who I am sure will be able to help you out better than we can here.

    Good luck.
