Thread: Help 3GS ios 5
01-16-2012, 09:48 PM #1Help 3GS ios 5
I tried to downgrade ios 5 to 4.1 stock ipsw (TU wouldn't save any blobs) and now I'm stuck in recovery loop.. I tried everything imaginable to try to get out it, including custom ipsw with snowbreeze but I keep getting error 3194... I was trying to go for an untethered unlock but I guess I can't downgrade without blobs. Well I'm new to this so how should I go about restoring and unlocking my phone? Restore to 5.0.1 and go from there? I was trying to avoid tethered jailbreak.. Is there any way to unlock it without losing the gps?

Error 3194: Resolve error 3194 by updating to the latest version of iTunes.
You should be able to downgrade to 4.1 because apple is still signing it for 3GS. You just kick it out of recovery using TU after restore finishes with 1015 error.
And downgrading iOS Version will not downgrade your baseband.

Thanks BobaBoi, that did the trick! I had to update Itunes and remove the entries at the end of the hosts file. I will now use Redsn0w to install cydia and update bb afterwards.
