    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 127.0.0.1. Thus, you would get 3194 error. To check, open your browser and type in gs.apple.com. If you don't see a message from Apple about a place holder then your host file has been changed.
