    Default iPhone 4s blank screen, will only start in recovery mode
    I have a iphone 4s, the screen stays blank and my computer will not recognize it until its in recovery or dfu mode. iTunes wants to do a restore and update but i got a error 3194 when it was done. Tinyumbrella doesn't recognize the phone but redsnow see's it as an 'iphone 4s in dfu mode'.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Make sure your host file points to Apple (type "gs.apple.com" into your browser to make sure it goes to an Apple placeholder page)
    Make sure you have the newest iTunes
    Hook the 4S up to USB cable, hold down the Power and Home Button until it tries to reboot
    As it is trying to boot, start iTunes, see if iTunes will allow restore to 6.0.1

    Make sure iTunes is updated

    Yeah i guess the problem might be with the version of I tunes you are using..it needs to be constantly updated to work fine.
