3194 error updating to IOS5
Wondering if anyone can shed some light on this issue. My ipad 1, never jailbroken, cannot update to IOS5. I get the dreaded 3194 error. I am on Windows 7 64 bit and I have tried the following:
Uninstalled and reinstalled Itunes
confirmed no viruses or spyware on machine
disabled windows firewall
uninstalled Microsoft Security Essentials
closed all apps on ipad and rebooted
Put ipad into DFU mode to restore
Tried to just restore and not upgrade
The Ipad syncs fine, it backs up fine but after extracting the software the 3194 error shows up. I am out of ideas and wondering if this is an issue connecting to Apple servers due to demand or an underlying issue with the Ipad itself.
Thanks in advance to anyone that has a good idea to try!
Wow, 117 reviews and no answers. I hope that means that I had hit all the obvious solutions and there wasn't obvious direction. Luckily I saw this in the IOS 5 Forum and it worked!
Cross posting here in case this thread comes up for someone in a future search. The OP was syncing an iphone but it worked fine with the ipad.
Thanks to lpilot4s for this tip!
"One other issue I had when restoring the IPhone was the 3194 error.
I navigated to the following folder - C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\
Right clicked on hosts (I had to open with in Word Pad to do the edits and I also had to adjust the security properties on the folder to allow for the change. Also I made a copy of the Host File before editing)
Deleted any IP lines pointing to gs.apple.com
CTRL + S to save
Saved as "All files" (not a txt or anything)
Reloaded ITunes and restored my IPhone"

If u have tiny umbrella installed it redirects the host files and that is what causes the error .. It happen to me I just open tu under advance and unchecked the settings and then closed and updated in iTunes and it fixe my issue .. With me it had nothing to do with my iPhone or iPad ever being JB
