    Question stuck iphone 5 "preparing for update"
    hello guys,

    here's my story i have one iphone 5 running 7.0.6 Jailbreaked

    one day i updated 2 apps and downloaded one more app i think it was cam pro 2

    and then after some time i was charging my iphone and i rebooted my iphone but it didnt start.

    i tried to restore it (first time) and it says i have to update it to 7.1
    and i downloaded a file " iPhone5,2_7.1_11D167_Restore "
    now again i tried to update it so i got an itunes error i think it was error 3194

    again i searched for this error then i got TinyUmbrella i started TSS server successfully and it done it work by fixing error 3194.

    now itunes stuck in preparing iphone for update processing bar seems completed but nothing next.

    i searched again for this issue but i got nothing helpfull..

    please take a look if you guys can find anything for me.

    one more thing i have read somewhere if my iphone is discharged that can be a problem i tried to charge it but it stills restarting so i dont know it charges or not.

    next i am using win7
    and i dont have original data cable is that the problem? i can't find one in my city.

    is there any other tool to just flash it i can manage data lost.

    3194 error is that your trying to install an iOS that Apple is no longer signing. The firmware you trying to use will not work.
    Try this link, it will give you the links to the correct iOS and also what Apple is signing still for your device.
