    Earlier my phone was stuck on the connect to itunes logo.
    Nothing was able to get it out of it,so i bit the bullet & restored thru itunes to ios 6.1.3.
    Before I did this I had problems with the error 3194(trying to downgrade to 4.2.1).
    So,anyway Ive managed to save my shsh blobs(emailed them to myself).My question is Can I now restore/downgrade to 4.2.1 if my shsh blobs are saved? any help would be appreciated. my heads' bursting,getting confused with DFU/recovery etc lol

    If you verify your blobs with redsn0w and they are valid, you should be able to downgrade.

    Thanks for replying. I have 4.2.1 with saved & verified blobs. But each time i try to restore to 4.2.1 with itunes on 2 pc's, i keep getting error3194. Is there anyway to rectify this? I tried amending hosts file on main pc but no luck-still 3194.(ps im sure its 3194,but getting tired now plus getting old haha). Thanks for taking the time to help.

    Assuming your cable and USB port are both ok, try disabling any anti-virus. I also hear newer versions of iTunes prevent custom restores, so try using redsn0w to downgrade.

    If you're on 6.1.3 you can jailbreak, though it will most likely be a tethered one. The redsn0w website has the guide on how to jailbreak 6.1.3. I can repost it when I am no longer mobile.
