Thread: Need some help updating my 3GS!

I have an iphone 3GS jailbroken 4.3.5 and I am trying to upgrade to 5.1.1 so i can jailbreak and unlock it! I keep getting error 3194 and a couple other ones trying different ways to upgrade it, I have put into DFU mode and blocked the servers in the hosts file. One multiple computers does anyone know of any way to do this without getting errors in itunes?

3194 is a firmware error, you will have to stitch a custom firmware and have you SHSH blobs saved to do so.
Occurs when trying to install an old firmware and Apple's server disallows the installation. The only solution is to have SHSH backup and modify the hosts file to point to Saurik's Cydia Server where they are backed up (or localhost if you have it yourself).

Alright so how exactly does that work? Do I backup the SHSH Blob of the 4.3.5 and stick that to the 5.1.1 firmware file? Thanks for the help

I am currently on 4.3.5 though so I wouldn't have the blob for 5.1.1 because I am trying to upgrade to that versions and not iOS 6 as iTunes tries to force me

Yes it is currently jailbroken(tethered) on 4.3.5. So let me get this straight, I retrieve my SHSH Blob through TinyUmbrella from my currently jailbroken 4.3.5 and then stitch that Blob into a 5.1.1 IPSW file and use THAT file to restore/update my 3gs with? Thanks

Nope, you need stitch the 5.1.1 blobs and make a custom firmware from them, did you not read through the link I posted in post #4?

How do I get my 5.1.1 blobs if iTunes wont let me upgrade to it? The whole point of this is me upgrading to 5.1.1 from 4.3.5 and iTunes won't let me because it keeps coming up with error 3194 or 21 or some other one every way I try

So since I never had 5.1.1 on my 3GS(so no Blob to stitch) this is going to be impossible?
