    When I first tried to update to 6.1.2 in iTunes (by right-clicking Restore and using iPhone4,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore), I got a 3194 error.

    I added 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com to my hosts file and restarted.

    iTunes then instead displayed a 21 error when I tried to update using the same method above - only now my iPhone 4S is stuck showing the "connect to iTunes" display.

    Any ideas?

    6.1.2 is no longer current and cannot be restored to in iTunes. You have to either stay at 6.1 and be jailbroken or go to 6.1.3 and run stock.

    I don't believe the update process to 6.1.2 actually happened, so I think 6.1 is still installed.

    I just need to kick it out of this recovery mode.

    Any ideas?

    The "Fix Recovery" button does nothing on my iPhone 4S in this current situation

    Also, using the "Recovery fix" button in redsn0w 0.9.15b3 displays "This feature is not supported on the iPhone 4S".

    I have.

    I've tried many things - I am at a loss.

    I feel my only option is the un-jailbreakable 6.1.3

    Before you do that, let the battery die then charge it back up. That could knock it out of recovery mode.

    Too late I needed to use the phone this evening.

    I appreciate your help a lot, guys.

    Lesson learned, research before trying to upgrade. Currently no way to restore to anything other than 6.1.3 on A5+ devices.
