i tried to:
- custom firmware 4.2.1
- custom firmware 4.1
- original firmware 4.2.1
- original firmware 4.1
whatever i do im stuck at dfu mode. if i try custom firmware, i get the pineapple logo and after 10 20 seconds it vanishes and puts the phone back into dfu mode (i can check this by opening iTunes and it will tell me theres a phone waiting to be recovered)
i have pressed both buttons, toghether, alone, simultanously, 10sec,20sec,60sec. nothing happens.
i think the iOS is installed proper but somehow it cant boot.
edit: i used resn0w 0.9.6b5
i also have already had the 1600 failure and 3194 , but all resolved. only stuck in dfu mode.

how did u resolve error 3194

@naser: you have to change your gs.apple.com dns entry in the host file to sauriks server. i think this one worked around that problem.
3194 is the error you should be getting when youre trying to restore in itunes with apples firmware and 3194 means their blocking it. thats what i think.

i cant get a new phone ill HAVE!!! to get this working. im without a phone
@x98car: i dont have a single shsh
@naser: did you put your phone in dfu mode through ultrasn0w or iReb ??? then the error should go away.

if i tell you i dont have em , i dont have em.
i can restore to any firmware i want when i enter the phone with iReb or redsn0w and then install on itunes but NOTHING happens on the phone AFTER install. i never get to see the iOS.
never made 1 single shsh in my whole life. tinyumbrella got installed yesterday. so please dont try to be smart. but thanks for the help anyway.
is there a way to shsh NOW whats on the phone and then install 4.1 custom firmware ??

i will leave my job in 30 minutes, as soon as i reach home, i will try to build a CFW 4.2.1 with pwnage tool and see if this can help me (but im very sure it wont :/ ).
@x98car: no insult. its just what i was feelin, because ive never done it, so how come... but anyway
its a 3gs
when i openup tinyumbrella there is NO phone, if i put my 3g into it , it shows immediately and i can use the options. you get me ?? for TU its like there is no 3gs (but if i open itunes it says start recovery bla bla)

maybe we are all dumb...lol...i think i will just use jailbreak with greepois0n as it seems to be the best one out there. what a dissaster ohh i fogot to tell u also when i jailled with limera1n i had no more service that is when i freaked out and wanted to restore trough TU

it has to work somehow, the phone still reacts and i can see the pineapple when i boot in tethered with redsn0w, but the problem after it starts to boot its resets itself in dfu mode.
