I have an iPod Touch 4G that was previously jailbroken with Greenpoison. I had a ***** of a time restoring it a few months ago, and at one point it was a brick. I thought I had saved the SBSH files, but don't seem to have them anymore on my laptop.
I am now running 4.2.1 and every time I try to upgrade to 5.0 I get an error 3194. I have searched on this topic and the advice I have seen is not specific enough for this novice.
I reset the device, then set it up as a new iPod, but even this does not help. I know enough to know that I have some old code in the OS that is conflicting with the Apple code.
Can someone point me to the steps I need to take to return this to a pure stock device? I really would like to try 5.0 and some of the new features.
Edit: I have made a little progress. I think my problem is that I am installing the wrong firmware. I can only get 4.2.1 to actually load in DFU mode, but this build does not work (3194 error when I try to upgrade to 5.0). What file am I supposed to be loading for this 4G iPodTouch? I think it depends on what I was running when I jailbroke, but it must not have been 4.2.1. Any suggestions?
Edit2: finally figured it out. Used Tinyumbrella to mod the setup to not use cydia servers and then rolled back to 4.2.1 and mysteriously the 5.0 upgrade finally took. I may be never jailbreak again, life is too short...

3194 is a host error file.
Reset your hosts file to default and then upgrade.
