iPhone 4? Maybe. Go ask iphoneforums.net
iPad 2? Not possible at all.
I left a message on the main hacking forum and was told to use tiny umbrealla which i have already done but i need help
I have a ipad 1 with firmware 4.3.5 the one before ios5. At work at mo so cant be certain. Anyho - a while back i used jailbreakme.com and had the iPad working. However I decided that i wanted to go back to the ipad being a normal ipad as jailbreaking wasnt for me. I did do the same for the iphone and was able to restore it and point it away from cydia so that it would update normally through itunes without saying i was not eligible.
With the ipad however, I tried to update to IOS5 last night and got the dreaded not eligible error mesage. I but the device into recovery with TU and still got nothing. The tick box for point it away from cydia is already unchecked. I also have no saved SHSH Blobs.
I dont know what to do. I have read the FAQ on Blobs and it is my understanding that these allow me to revert the ipad to earlier versions of firmwares.
My questions are
Is there still a way to save my ipad and get it completely back to normal?
The ipad isnt bricked is it?
What do i do without saved blobs - TU doesnt seem to be able to help?
All I want is to return the pad to normal!
Thanks in advance for the help!
First, you don't want to use Tiny Umbrella ... mainly because it's unnecessary. So, when you try the upgrade again - do NOT have Tiny Umbrella running.
Then, people reported they were getting a lot of errors because Apple's servers were getting slammed. So, I'd suggest you try again.
If that doesn't work, try downloading the official iOS5 firmware from our sticky here: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24939-official-apple-ios-firmware-download-links-ipad.html
Then, put your iPad into DFU mode (with iTunes closed). iTunes should open and it'll tell you it's found an iPad that needs restoring. Hold the shift key and press the restore button and you'll be offered a browsing window where you can find the firmware you just downloaded. iTunes should take it from there.
But - I would try just plugging the iPad into iTunes and having it upgrade from there. Now that the servers have had a chance to breathe - it ought to work fine. Just don't use/mess with Tiny Umbrella.
Let us know how you get on.
DFU Mode saved my life in this situation. tried everything. got error (3194) no matter if i used TU or NOTEPAD for manually editing the hots file. but putting it into DFU mode and restoring it, made it all work out!
Thank you! I went in and disabled Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter under Network Adapters, and this fixed my 3194 error. It's great that this was the only post that mentioned this unique solution. This should be added to the instructions.
I should modify my post by saying I encountered the 3194 error again. I had to disable all network adapters and then enable my primary network adapter for iTunes to overcome the error.
Ipad recovery problem
I have been attempting to update my Ipad 1 to IOS 5 for hours now. I have followed all the instructions listed above several times, including the suggestions to reboot my pc but continue to get the 3194 error code from itunes.
I am running windows 7 x64 and IOS 4.3.5 on my ipad with Redsn0w 9x.
Here is what my hosts file looks like:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 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
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 188.8.131.52 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 184.108.40.206 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
# 220.127.116.11 gs.apple.com
# 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
Any help or suggestions are definitely welcome. I'm hoping there is just some small detail that I keep missing. Thank you in advance!
- also, my itunes does not auto open when I put the ipad in DFU mode, I have to manually open itunes.
It looks like I might have missed the signing window for IOS 5... my itunes wants me to update to 5.0.1. Could this be why I'm getting the 3194 error when trying to recover to my 4.3.5 or the IOS 5 load?
At this point I cannot access any utility based app on my pad (settings, winterboard, cydia, etc), they all cause an instant reboot of the unit. This particular symptom didn't occur until after I attempted the recovery.
Yep, that's why. Apple has closed the iOS 5.0 window. Your only choice now is to move up to iOS 5.0.1 (or back down to a 4.x something - IF you have the SHSH blobs).
The good news is that 5.0.1 is jailbreakable (tethered) - so there's that.
P.S. Note to other readers - the poster has an iPad1. There is no jail break (yet) for the iPad2, tethered or untethered. Just to save any questions...
Is it possible to use Redsn0w to 'rebreak' my ipad, to to perform a sort of re-install? Something has gone wrong with the software as stated above and I cannot even get into safe mode. I installed no new applications within the last week, so I am convinced that attempting the restore started all of this.
