    Default iTunes error 3194 when Restoring
    I have an unlocked iPhone 5, i cant factory restore it because i get an iTunes error 3194. I also cant reset it in Setting>General>Reset>Reset All Contents and Settings because i dont know the Restrictions passcode. Is there a way to restore it?

    Error 3194 occurs when trying to install an old firmware and Apple's server disallows the installation. Apple is not signing 6.1.3/4 anymore, have to move up to 7.0.1 for a fresh restore.

    Also, if you used TinyUmbrella, the host file may be changed to Thus, you would get 3194 error. To check, open your browser and type in If you don't see a message from Apple about a place holder then your host file has been changed.
