    So I tried to do the sn0wbreeze jailbreak for 4.2.8 and it didn't work out as planned. Now, my phone won't boot, and I can't restore it through iTunes. My error code is 3194. Any idea on how to fix this?

    *edit1* iTunes says the phone is in 'recovery mode' but no luck.

    *edit2* I tried restoring to a custom 4.2.7 firmware (the latest version of iOS that I was running) and it somewhat worked. Now the phone's telling me to connect to iTunes, and I'm still getting the message that my 'phone's in recovery mode'.

    *edit3* I went from a '3194' error to a '1014' error to a '21' error.

    *edit4 (hopefully final edit)* Looks like I got it back to 4.2.7 thanks to iREB. So far so good. I appreciate all the help for those that took the time to reply to this thread!

    *final edit* I was able to do a full recover to 4.2.8. Running on stock firmware for now. No rush to re-jailbreak at the moment. Thanks again!

    This happened to me and I found installing iTunes on a different pc solved the problem

    If reinstalling iTunes doesn't work the. Try editing the host files on your computer. Search the forums for host files and I'm sure you will find instructions on it as a lot of people have been having this problem lately

    Editing the hosts files didn't work? Try using another computer if possible, one that hasnt had a jailbroken device plugged into it. If that's not available make another user name on your computer and redownload the software on the new username and see if that works.

    Just seen your edits. Go to apples support page and they will tell you what the codes mean and how you could possibly fix it.

    I've been researching all these error codes; no luck so far on a fix. Been trying everything so far.

    I had that happen .... I just hit restore, don't hold shift and just completely restore it. Then once it was restored I did the jailbreak again and it worked.

    Not sure if you have a Mac, but if you do use pwnagetool. It was the easiest for me lol. I just couldn't jailbreak my iPhone 4 (Verizon) with sn0wbreeze. Kept on getting errors and I am so glad that they came out with pwnagetool.

    Nope, I don't own a Mac. Strictly PC since I build my own computers. I got it all to work and I was even able to do a full restore (something was a bit "off" with my 4.2.7 restore) so I'm just on stock firmware 4.2.8. I didn't have much on my jailbroken firmware so it won't hurt to wait for a more stable jailbreak for 4.2.8. I heard that if I jailbreak now, it should work, but I'm in no hurry right now. Thanks for the heads-up though!
