    I would like to update my jailbroken ipad from 4.3.5 to 5.0. The guide says it first needs to have the official 5.0 installed so I've been trying to update it through itunes and it keeps giving me the 3194 error. I already tried going into Tiny Umbrella and made sure the "Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit" was NOT checked so I know it's not that. Is there some kind of special procedure I need to follow when going from a jailbroken FW to an OFW?

    Thanks guys

    As far as I know it's always better to restore to OFW (currently JB on your device) and then upgrade. That's what I've been doing with my iPhone and I would imagine it's the same for iPads.

    That's what I'm trying to do, but iTunes keeps giving me that error when I try to update it.

    To update a jailbroken iPad you need to put it into DFU mode.

    Ok that answers my question, thanks.

    One side question though, will this wipe out any of my apps or settings or anything?

    If you do an iTunes backup first, no, it shouldn't wipe out your apps and settings (from the App Store). Of course, you will lose the Cydia and jail break tweaks and such ... but you knew that. :D

    I was at my wits end as I kept getting the same message 'Device not eligible for requested build'. Even for my iTouch, which I never did anything to. I never jailbroke any of my devices. I DID install TinyUmbrella (TU) to save my blobs back in July 2011 before they were going to stop saving them, but never jailbroke my device. Apparently, TinyUmbrella updates a file which directs iTunes where to look. (see links below). After removing the '#' mark in front of the address and saving it, I restarted my Mac to be on the safe side. And Viola ! Everything worked liked normal ! I was able to update to iOS 5. YAY !
    I don't know if this will solve all of your problems, but it worked for me. NOTE: Depending on if you are on Snow Leopard or on Lion will determine what command you will need to key in at Terminal to update the file. They are different. You may have to Google to find the correct one if your screen comes up blank. Good Luck !:)

    You CANNOT install 5.0 now. Only 5.0.1 is valid.

    This happened to me I was in 4.3.3 and wanted to go to 5.0.1. Go to DFU mode first then follow prompts to restore to version you like

    I can't understand why this would help, your trying to update to an iOS that Apple is still signing, you aren't Jailbroken, so it should have been plain sailing!?
    I thought 3194 error only occurred when an iPad was Jailbroken, to sort the problem go into DFU Mode and then let iTunes do it's bit.

    Look i am not a professional at all in this but i think it's like a third party interfance it really worked with me
    Plus i did it cuz i was afraid to delete any of the host stuff i read about and i saw videos on you tube ,it was the least invasive percedure to do just downloaded a 2.8MB tinyumberlla and unchecked the box and i went good thnx god
