    1. Download 9B206 you can find it on the web
    2. Start iTunes and back up your iPhone 4 GSM
    3. Hold shift and hit Restore then locate the iphone3,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore and restore with 5.1.1
    4. After it is done reinstall your backup
    5. Run the jailbreak software and you are done
    same difference!

    other than using DFU mode insures a clean restore! which I would recommend

    if its at&t and the 2year contract is fulfilled take it to there store and ask them to unlock it,which they have to do now, there was a big article wrote up on it awhile ago where someone emailed Tim Cook and he asked AT&T to unlock it then AT&T then put out a memo that says they will unlock it only if your contract is fulfilled!

    Just follow the first step until you connect with internet using Wifi. The iPhone will be activated and the jailbreak button will be available.

    CONFIRMED download 9B206 i found it on the web (can I mention websites?) if so let me know n ill tell u were i downloaded it from!

    1. download 9B206
    2. plug in phone via USB and put phone in DFU mode ( turn phone off, hold home and sleep/wake 10 sec then hold home until iTunes sees it)
    3. iTunes will say do you want to restore hit yes then select restore on iTunes/iphone screen while holding down SHIFT key,point to your 9B206 5.1.1 firmware that you just downloaded
    4. phone will restore,( if you get error on osx try on windows?)
    5. open absinthe 2.0.1 it will now recognize your phone, hit jailbreak
    6. enjoy
    Does this work on a 3Gs 4.3.3/06.15.00 ? I tried to restore using downloaded 9B206 on a Mac (holding down "option", btw) and it said it was an incompatible file. Do I have to upgrade to 5.1.1 first, then restore to this ispw file?

    Thanks!

    look at my last post







    for those of you that don't know what 9b206 is heres the scoop

    apple put out a silent update to 5.1.1 on iphone 4 gsm only
    the firmware 5.1.1 stays the same but the build number changes from 9b206 to 9b208 which absinthe 2.0.1 doesn't support 9b208 only 9b206
    lastly to see if your iphone 4 gsm (at&t is gsm in the united states) has build 9b206 or 9b208 go to settings general about scroll down and it'll tell you which version of 5.1.1 you have!
    So if you have 9b208 see my post above to fix this, you'd better hurry cause i don't know how long apple will continue signing it!

    forget all i told you about this!

    Absinthe 2.0.2 now supports 9b208 for iphone 4 gsm!!!!

    error 3194 fix: open tiny umbrella, click advanced, deselect box that says set hosts to cydia on exit. Close tiny umbrella and try restore again.

    error 21 fix: use snowbreeze/ireb/redsnow to enter pwned DFU before restoring to a custom firmware.

    Apple is still registering iOS 5.1.1 SHSH Blobs, so this error can appear under the following conditions:

    You have your HOSTS file blocking gs.apple.com
    You have your HOSTS file redirecting gs.apple.com to Cydia server and you do not have any SHSH blobs on Cydia server
    TinyUmbrella TSS server is running in background but you have not saved iOS 5.1.1 SHSH blobs on TinyUmbrella.
    Solution to fix iTunes Error 3194
    Check your HOSTS file and make sure you are not blocking gs.apple.com.
    Make sure TinyUmbrella is NOT running in the background.
    Try to launch https://gs.apple.com: It should open the Apple site, and not be redirected to the Cydia server.
    We tested this, and it really worked! Did you encounter this error also? Or maybe other annoying errors? We will keep on testing the process today. If there are more possible errors like this we will post it as soon as possible! If you encountered a problem, leave your comments and we will get back to you!

    Was this explanation about how to fix iTunes error 3194 useful for you?
