    I need help for some reason Itunes wont let me restore my 4th Gen 32GB iOS 6.1 Jailbroken Ipod it keeps giving me error 3194 I've tried modifying the Hosts but it still doesn't seem to fix it. I've considered restoring my device via the Ipod itself and was curious if that would fix the problem, because i want to update to iOS 6.1.2 then re-jailbreak just wondering if someone could help me.
    Thanks in advance! :lol:

    You can't restore to iOS 6.1.2 without SHSHs backed up. Apple is currently only signing iOS 6.1.3 for your device.

    Bit late for that. Oh, and fun fact: Cydia's auto shsh backup of 6.0 to 6.1.2 are worthless :D

    Yeah, basically if you don't have SHSH blobs saved with TinyUmbrella, you can't "update" to 6.1.2. You have to go directly to 6.1.3.

    This means your SHSH or APTicket is outdated/no longer valid.
    (Your firmware you downloaded won't work)
    You might get away with using custom firmware using the boot exploit

    Look up sn0wbreeze, and restore from a custom 6.1.2 firmware IPSW. Also fool around with a program called iREB if it isn't working at first. If it doesn't work at all you are out of luck.

    Since you already attempted to restore, I am fairly certain that your shsh blobs are gone, and that sn0wbreeze, iREB, tinyumbrella, etc are useless. You can try to get your blobs with tinyumbrella or iREB don't be surprised if it doesn't work.

    You won't say goodbye to jailbreaking for long ;) Say hello to iOS 7 (it's unofficially already jailbroken ;3)
