Thread: Iphone 4 update to 4.3.3 and unlock

  1. #1
    Default Iphone 4 update to 4.3.3 and unlock
    Friends,

    I currently have iphone 4 with firmware 02.10.04 version 4.1
    I unlocked my phone using gevey pro about 1 month back.

    Now I thought of updating my phone to 4.3.3 via itunes as gevey also works with this version.
    Now when I update it gives me error
    "The iphone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (3194)"

    I even tried to do a restore also but that also gives me this error.

    I also took my gevey sim out and tried then thinking that might be a problem but still no help.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    No unlock is available. Gavey SIM is the only known work-around.

    Error 3194: Occurs when trying to install an old firmware and Apple's server disallows the installation. The only solution is to have SHSH backup and modify the hosts file to point to Saurik's Cydia Server where they are backed up (or localhost if you have it yourself). iTunes Errors - The iPhone Wiki

    Apple is currently signing 4.3.3 so this error should not occur. It's likely the computer hosts file has been modified with TinyUmbrella. Remove all *.apple.com entries (or rerun TU and uncheck change hosts file option) and try again.

    Your solution worked.
    It had some problem with the windows host file.
    I saw this post
