i'm trying to update my ipad from ios 3 to ios 4.3.3. I already put my ipad into dfu mode. then i put in to itunes and hit restore. but without tinyumbrella, itunes keep give me error 3194. when i use tinyumbrella to fix recovery, my ipad just turn white screen and then with some codes such like unable to find gBdevlist, fs_mount, greenpoison initialized and etc. With this mode, i get to recover from itunes but each time itunes finish installing the new firmware on my ipad, my ipad just went back to recovery mode again. anyone help please? thanks in advance

First question I have to ask is: Do you have SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.3? Check by following the directions in this sticky: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...01-how-save-your-shsh-blobs-tinyumbrella.html

If you don't have blobs, then you can't upgrade to iOS 4.3.3. All you can do is upgrade to iOS 4.3.5 and then do a tethered jailbreak on your iPad1 (which you must do real fast BEFORE Apple closes the window on iOS 4.3.5!). Here's a sticky to start you off on that: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2838-jailbreak-explained-new-updated-2011-a.html

or You can do a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5. Start here with this sticky that'll help you do so: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lbreak-ipad1-ios5-tethered-using-redsn0w.html

If you DO have blobs for iOS 4.3.3, go here to this sticky for directions on how to use them (and Tiny Umbrella) to upgrade your iPad to iOS 4.3.3: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...des/26399-how-upgrade-your-ios-jailbreak.html

Good luck with whichever method you choose and please let us know how you're getting on.

To get help, you need to give a lot more details. Which model iPad2 (3G or WiFi only), what version of IOS are you trying to install, and which were you one before?

If you don't give details it makes it very hard to diagnose the issue.
