    ipad 2 4.3.2

    i have brand new ipad 2 with 4.3.1.
    i tried to upgrade it to 4.3.3 however I received 3194 error message...

    Is there any way for me to jailbreak this ipad since I do not have any SHSH saved, I just opened the box tonight and turned it on for the first time... Connected it to Itunes and tried to upgrade it to 4.3.3...

    Thanks...

    No, sorry. No chance as things stand.

    Hi,

    I'm still unable to update to 4.3.3.

    I'm using Vista 64-bit, currently JB by GP on 4.2.1.

    Here's what i have,

    # Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    ::1 localhost
    127.0.0.1 activate.adobe.com
    #74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    #127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com

    Here's the version i am using - tinyumbrella-5.00.10, TU doesn't have the save option but if i exit and open TU again, the option stays unchecked after removing it so i guess it was saved.

    TIA!:)

    In your case, it'd be both, actually. Follow the steps outlined in the tutorial - using the iOS 4.3.3 IPSW.

    First, the iPad will be restored to iOS 4.3.3 stock. Then, you can navigate via Safari on your iPad to JailbreakMe 3.0 and jailbreak it (two easy button presses!). Done.

    You'll be upgraded and jailbroke.

    Here is a little tip too. I'm posting here because its the 1st in the list from Google for error 3194. If you have vmware workstaion installed you can get 3194 even if you dont have the hosts entry!!!!! If you do have vmware workstation installed or if you have multiple network adapters on your machine, disable them in Device Manager before you try. Worked for me. So the combination of hosts and disabling any other network adapters should do it. Tested and verified on 3 machines.

    Hi. Previously my iPad2 is running on iOS 4.3.1. I want to jailbreak it using jailbreakme. So, I try to upgrade my firmware to 4.3.3.

    When I read tutorial, it says that make sure to save SHSH Blobs first. Then, I downloaded tinyumbrella-5.00.10 and save SHSH.

    After that, I go to iTunes and hold "Shift" and click Restore and click iPad2,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw. Unfortunately, I got this response "iPad could not be restored. Error 3194".

    Then, I read your thread. I follow your instruction UNTICK the option which says "Set hosts to Cydia on exit". Tried to restore but got same result.

    Then, I put this iPad into DFU mode. Try again and failed too.

    I have reboot my computer but result still the same.

    This is screenshot for my TU.

    This is screenshot for my C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

    BTW, I'm running on Windows XP. Please help me.
