    Hello,

    I have an ipad 1 with 3.2 iOS which I jailbreaked with Spirit a while ago. I'm trying to update it to 4.3.3 because I want to jailbreak it again after that.

    Well, I've tried several methods to do it, but I can't get it.

    * First of all I have to say I have some SHSH files saved with TinyUmbrella, but none of them is 3.2, the older I have is 3.2.1. Also, I have the lastest iTune's version.

    * I've tried redsn0w 0.9.6 r16, but then I realized I had to upgrade to 4.3.3 first.
    * I've tried with sn0wbreeze 2.7, but always get 3194 error, so I've deleted entries for 'gs.apple.com' from hosts file, then I get 160X error. But I can't go forward, always stuck on the same errors.

    Any ideas about how can I do it? or it is impossible because I don't have an 3.2 SHSH saved? Is it possible to avoid 3194 error using an older version of iTunes?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried upgrading to official 4.3.3 first?...that's what I had to do when I was JB on 4.2.1....kept getting the error 1600 when trying to update to 4.3.2 JB directly. Then once on 4.3.3 then you can JB with which ever method you want.

    Yes, I've also tried it because I knew after that I could do the JB, but always get the error 160X.

    Do you have the latest iTunes installed?

    What I would suggest, assuming you want to jailbreak 4.3.3, is as follows:

    First, ensure you have no entry in your hosts for gs.apple.com. Double check and make sure it is removed. Also make sure you have the LATEST iTunes.

    Next, you need to do a clean stock 4.3.3 restore in iTunes. To do that you need to put the iPad in DFU mode first. No other method will work. There are instructions in the sticky thread in this section (DFU for Dummies).

    You will not get the 3194 or 16xx errors if you follow the two steps above.

    Then, once you have 4.3.3 installed, I suggest you use redsn0w to jailbreak it. A tutorial is available in our tutorial and guides section (link in my sig)

    Hope that helps.

    I think I have done all of this, but I'll do it again this afternoon when I be at home.

    Try putting it in dfu mode, then open iTunes, hold shift, click restore, then point to a 4.3.3 fw somewhere on your computer

    I've done it right now... DFU mode (black screen), then open iTunes, then iTunes has recognized a device in recovery mode, so I've selected the ipws that iTUnes downloaded previously then.... ERROR 3194. So I can't go forward, I don't know what more can I do :(

    Google "error 3194" and click on the first link, wasn't sure if I could post links on this forum and try pointing to a 4.3.3 other than the one iTunes downloaded !

    3194 only happens when you are not pointing to Apple for your blobs. There is a sticky in the guides section about it. Post the contents of your hosts file here please, so I can check.
