    Default Upgrading iphone 4 and 3gs from 5.0.1 errors Please help
    I have Iphone 3gs and iphone 4. Both are on 5.0.1
    3GS - 05.13.04 had soft unlocked

    I been trying to upgrade to either 5.1.1 or 6.0 and tried both of them and keeps on getting errors.
    First I get error 3194, which I correct it by inserting the ip address. As soon as I do that I get error either 1600 or 1601.

    I am putting the device into pwn dfu mode then shift + restore to select custom ipsw. It verifies the with apple server after a while I get these errors. Sometimes it gets stuck on preparing for restore and after 3 minutes you get error 21.

    I am kind of stuck in these errors if correct one thing I get another error.

    I have tried itunes 10.7 and 11 both same issue. I even switched the computer still same thing.

    I don't know if I am doing something wrong or my bad luck. Please help

    I have tried absinthe, redsn0w, and snow breeze.

    If you not going to the latest firmware you will need the shsh blobs to upgrade to them. If ya don't have them you will git the errors you gitting.

    Upgrade or restore using redsn0w. I had a similar problem with my iPad. I kept getting errors trying to use iTunes so I just used redsn0w to restore/ update to newer firmware. But if your not updating to the latest firmware you will need a signed ipsw file

    Thank you for replying.
    I used redsn0w and was getting errors as well. I end up stitching the ipsw with redsn0w and running tiny umbrella in the background to avoid errors. I updated to 5.1.1 since there is no untethered jailbreak for 6.0.1.
    Once I updated I lost all my apps even after restore.
    Is anyway you can save it in your computer rather going through itunes?

    Transfer your purchases before restore or go on iTunes on your computer and download all your purchases into your iTunes library.
