    Mine is a little different than the previous post. I'm on Verizon and my iPhone is not unlocked.

    Can anyone help me get around the error 3194 that I receive when I try to upgrade to iOS 6.0? As I stated, I'm on a 4s running 5.0.1 - jailbroken using Absinthe. There is so many things that are out there and I don't know where to start. Tiny Umbrella? Factory reset (which doesn't work - I still get the same 3194 error)?

    Please help. Caution: relative noob with some rooting experience on Android.

    Thanks a lot!

    It's called DFU mode.

    How are you updating to IOS 6. That error occurs when you are trying to downgrade and apple dis allows it.

    Have you tried doing an over the air update in settings in your phone? This should work.

    The OTA gives me an error. It gets to the part where it should be installing it and then I receive an error message. I've tried several times telling me it can't do it "at this time".

    If I were to go the DFU route, does it really need to be done on an itunes account on a different computer? Oh, and is this the same as "restore mode". I think I may have tried this method already. Is there another option if so?

    Thanks, guys!

    That error is something to do with apple signing. I'm thinking you host file may have been changed or something. So the easiest way is try another computer.

    Just thinking about it. Have you updates iTunes?

    DFU Mode and using a different computer with itunes worked. I'm restoring from an iCloud backup for now. Will try to restore with a more recent backup on my own computer later today.

    Thanks!
