    I have an Ipad 2 with iOS 6.2.1 (jailbroken) and I want to erase everything and upgrade to ios 7.0.6 in order to jailbreak.
    In itunes when using a restore with a ipsw file (iPad2,2_7.0.6_11B651_Restore.ipsw) , itunes gives an unknown error 3004.

    Have followed this tutorial but does't work .. I've tested on 5 PC's but got the same error.

    I really need to clean my iPad is too slow...

    Any idea?


    thank you

    You're getting the error message because you are trying to restore to an iOS version that Apple is no longer signing. You have to restore to the latest iOS version, iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 7.1 as Apple is still signing both versions.

    Try the tutorial again, this time using the ipsw file for iOS 7.1.

    Thanks for the help.
    But I do not want to update to version 7.1.1 because I will not be able to jaibreak. I use VPN to an application that only works with jailbreak ... I need version 7.0.6.
    thank you

    You can't get iOS 7.0.6, it's iOS 7.1.1 or nothing.

    The tutorial you were trying to use is only for updating to the latest iOS version. Trying to use any other than the ipsw file for the latest iOS version it will cause the process to fail.

    ok! I understand ! then I will keep the version I have now.
    Just one last question ... how do I do reset the iPad entirely and set up as new iPad? my ipad is slow want to reinstall everything.
    In the settings does not work the option to restore (and I do not use because I have jailbreak).
    thanks

    You could try to use either the tweak iLex R.A.T or the tweak Semi-Restore to "clean" everything off your iPad (except the iOS version and the jail break). These two function as restore tools for jail broken devices.

    I've never used either, so can't tell you which one is best, whether they work on the iPad or that they will get you the result you wish. I have read of people having success with either of these tweaks - but some have not.

    I can tell you they are the only way you can "reset" an iPad yet still keep a jail break.

    Connect your device to your computer and place it into DFU mode as per the instructions. DFU mode installation bypasses quite a few issues that may still exist on Recovery Mode.

    Hi All,

    Have an iPad 2 GSM and followed the helpful tutorial.... even cleaned the host file and removed the references to gs.apple.com but when I shift restore in DFU mode, I still get an 3194 error.

    I did notice that before I went into Tiny Umbrella, the advanced tab with Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit was completely greyed out and couldn't be checked or unchecked. I also downloaded the latest version 7.06!

    Help please....

    The iPad remains frozen while firmware is being restored but no progress occurs. I see 7.1.2 has caused issues for some but my iPad appears permanently stuck in recovery mode.

    Help!

    It may take a long time. All I can suggest is to hang in there.

    And, apologies for the other link not containing the up-to-date firmware. I'll get that sorted...
