    Hi,

    Tried everything i can think of to remove evasion jailbreak from my iphone 5. can't reset device while jailbroken. can't restore without itunes attempting to update and always fails with error 3194.

    I'm sure I'm missing something but i've tried for weeks and no luck.

    Please, if there is a specific way this should be done, enlighten me!!

    Thanks

    So, if I am understanding you correctly, you want to go back to a stock 6.1.2 with no software modification? If so, that cannot be done. You have to either go to 6.1.4 in iTunes or live with it. Now if you uninstall MobileSubstrate, that will remove all tweaks and you will appear to be stock. Perhaps that would be enough to satisfy you.

    Hi Laelipoo,

    Would removing MobileSubstrate also remove Cydia? I've tried various ways to install 6.1.3 and now 6.1.4 also. I always seem to get a 3194 error. it's driving me nuts. My main issue with the phone is signal problems. i'd like to eliminate a software fault, but i can't seem to restore or reset the device. I guarantee if i go to an apple store, my luck would mean them saying "hard luck, it's a software fault"

    Thanks

    If you're trying to go stock and are ok with the update, put your phone into DFU mode prior to plugging it into iTunes and see if that helps.

    The only way to safely remove cydia is through a restore in iTunes. The post above mine has the instructions.
