    A host file entry may be required(don't hold me to that). Did you go into recovery mode, then restore?

    Hmm... I'm going to do some research for you. Get back to you with what I find.

    PS: Like I said earlier you may need to add a line of code to the host file, but I'm not entirely sure.

    Device isn't Eligble for the requested build error & iTunes error 3194 Fix! - YouTube

    This tutorial should work, it requires the editing of a host file(stated in a previous post). If you are using a PC here's how to navigate to the "Hosts" file: \windows\system32\drivers\etc

    Hope this helps!

    You can use tiny umbrella to set your hosts to cydia if you dont want to do it the manual way.

    Guys..... I tried all the stuff you told me along with the tutorials and videos. The process and responses from pawnage and snow but the phone is still in the recovery mode loop with the new icon of iTunes and the USB wire image.

    Even after DFUing it and custom ispw restoration it crashes iTunes and back to step 0. I changed the host as you said and still nothing!

    If u read my story this iphone is a different case really.
    And I ask you if you know.... IF I TAKE OUT THE BATTERY WILL IT FULLY RESET??? or will I do nothing?

    Take to to your local Apple store if you are still in warranty.

    @ Jason. Man there is no Apple store in my country!
    And all the things I have done to my iphone I think I have lost the warrnty ages ago.

    @ Everyone
    Thanks guys for all of your time and efforts. I knew my chances were low from start because I was in other forums also and no one could help me. I thought I would give it a shot here.

    As for trying to remove the battery. There are tuts on Utube and other sites... I thinks its my last resort. But I will remain for another few ideas from you lot if you have and then proceed.
