    Posted this in the other thread you responded in. For the Error 3014, try reinstalling both iTunes and downloading your iOS again. Restore through iTunes and DON'T download the 4.2.1 IPSW elsewhere for the restore.

    See if that helps.

    EDIT: I also read that your problem could be your ISP. If the above doesn't work, then try using this:

    Please help me out,is my host file ok?

    # 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

    # 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.

    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    I'm almost positive they have to look identical. Like this:

    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    # 127.0.0.1 localhost
    # ::1 localhost
    # 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    # 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
    # 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
    # gs.apple.com
    # 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com


    But, I could be wrong. I'm only going by with what I searched.
