    Default can't restore to 4.3.5 on iPad1
    Hi,

    i have an iPad 1 running ios 3.2 and want to update it, but don't have SHSH so i'm trying to restore to 4.3.5 but i get the error 3194.

    is there anyway to restore to other ios?

    and if no, how can i fix the error with 4.3.5??

    thanks

    Go to your hosts file and delete the line that has gs.apple.com

    I'm sort of in the same boat. My iPad1 had been acting sluggish (like it's having trouble freeing memory) so I tried to wipe everything and reinstall 4.3.2. I first tried editing the hosts file but iTunes refused to restore. I deleted the gs.apple.com line in the Hosts file but it still refused to restore using 4.3.2. Sitting there looking at the iPad stuck in DFU made me give up and just accept 4.3.5.

    I know it's gonna be tethered-only but what version of redsn0w do I need to jailbreak 4.3.5?

    Not sure what I did wrong but I thought if Cydia listed your SHSH blobs as saved you could restore the same iOS version without this happening?

    BTW, iPad with stock 4.3.5 is still as sluggish as before. :-(

    @jack, if you have your 4.3.2 shsh files you can build them into a custom signed (meaning no apple verification aka no need for edited host files) using ifaith and restore that way

    you can also try using sn0wbreeze(pc)/pwnagetool(mac) to build yourself 4.3.2 CFW (use baseband preservation mode, then jailbreak with redsn0w after successful restore) and then put it in a pwn'd dfu mode before the restore, this sometimes will fix your issue

    latest version of redsn0w = https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-de...edirects=0&d=1

    also i never had success when manually editing itunes host files, try using tinyumbrella's tss server instead

    quick side not for both of you, sometimes itunes doesn't like a specific usb port for some reason. i know its ridiculous, but that is apple for you, try switching them around. if using a tower, use the rear usb ports.

    good luck guys

    Your case is different, you need to point hosts file to cydia if you have 4.3.2 blob or start tss server with 4.3.2 blob downloaded as apple no longer signs the firmware.
