    Little tip for people using TU.

    If you have any VMWare services running you need to stop all VMWare in Windows Services for TU to work.

    I'm getting this same error and have nothing protecting my files. What can I try now? Or what file is it that you're suggesting we edit manually and "remove all referenced to gs.apple.com from the file. "

    Could you please expand your question a bit? What are you trying to do that you get this error?

    3194 means you have not corrected your HOSTS file so that it is pointing at Apple using Step 2, OR you are trying to restore a version of IOS which is not current, i.e it should be 5.1.1 today.

    Double check step 2 again.

    My iPad2 is jailbroken running 5.0, I'm trying to back up, then update to 5.1., then JB again. I followed the steps in the DFU tutorial, and that's when i got that message!

    If you are actually trying to restore to iOS 5.1 - and not iOS 5.1.1 - that is the problem right there. iOS 5.1 is not a current iOS and is no longer authorized by Apple. You need to download and use the most current iOS.

    It's quite possiple that I don't know what I'm doing. I want to update my JB iPad from 5.0 to 5.1.1, then JB and restore my old stuff. I followed the tips about putting it into the DFU mode and doing a shift/restore etc.
    For some reason when I did the shift restore I had a problem pointing to the 5.1.1, so I had to try to update to 5.1. I think that's why I tried to use 5.1 and not 5.1.1.
    Then when I pointed to 5.1 that's when i got the error.
    Could I just make a regular back up, then just update, the re JB?

    You cannot update to anything less than 5.1.1 currently. You need to download 5.1.1
    That is why you get the error.
