    error 3194 is indicative of not having SHSH blobs for whatever iOS version you want to restore to, if you do have shsh blobs, check to make sure your hosts file contains the entry "74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com", if it does not, you need to add it in there and save the hosts file

    I have tried adding and deleting that to the host file many times, and yes I'm trying to update to 5.1.1 so I don't need shsh blobs

    you dont add that entry to the hosts file if you are updating to the latest iOS version (5.1.1), in fact it cannot contain that entry at all...

    if you rely on an unlock for your iphone, create a custom firmware using sn0wbreeze v2.9.6, put your iphone in PWNED DFU MODE, then restore to the custom firmware by holding SHIFT + click the RESTORE and point it to the custom firmware in iTUNES

    no you dont need to restart the computer, however you do need to close itunes and reopen it

    but just be after that if you do an update "via itunes", it will update your baseband, which is dependent on unlock if you use an unofficial carrier (unless you do not care about it)
