    Exclamation iPhone 4S stuck in recovery loop (tinyumbrella doesn't work)

    Hi everyone, I'll be grateful if you could help me out. Sorry for my english by the way.

    A year ago i jailbroke my iphone 4s. I didn't restore nor update it (via itunes or ota) before i did it. After a couple of months i tried to restore and update but it didn't work. I got "3194 error" constantly. I tried redsn0w (i got the ipsw and the blobs), but it didn't work either. Recently i saw a cydia tweak named "iLEX RAT" i tried it and it worked. Then i tried restoring on itunes again, but it failed as always. So i tried updating to 6.1.3, it seemed like it's working but in the middle of the process i got "error 16". Then it got stuck in recovery mode. I tried everything; tinyumbrella, iREB, redsn0w... it doesn't work. When i click exit recovery on tinyumbrella, apple logo appears, then it disappears and it appears again as if the phone can't even start. Please help me this thread is my only hope right now. I dug into evey forum and every thread still i couldn't find anything.

    Btw i forgot to say that my version is 5.0.1 (9A406)

    You're on jailbroken 5.0.1 right now, and you're okay with updating to 6.1.3, for which there is no jailbreak? If so, I think putting your iPhone into DFU mode should let iTunes restore it to 6.1.3. If you don't know how to get into DFU, just follow along on one of the many YouTube videos that walks you through it.

    I really don't care if there is a jailbreak or not right now as long as my phone is in working condition. I will give it a try, thanks guys.

    I've moved this to the jailbreak forum where you're likely to get more help.
