    I attempted to do a manual update from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 on my jailbroken iPad3. I followed the manual update instructions here:

    Instructions to manually update iOS firmware | iOS Index

    and used the ipsw files found here

    iClarified - iPad - Where To Download iPad Firmware Files From

    and i downloaded the file for the iPad3 Wifi.

    The update encountered an error during the process and now when i plug my iPad in iTunes gives me this error

    Update iPad3 from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 Failed and now stuck at restore.-itunes-error.png

    i choose "OK"

    then at this screen

    Update iPad3 from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 Failed and now stuck at restore.-2-itunes-recovery-mode.png

    i hold down the [shift] key and click restore iPad and it allows me to choose the downloaded ipsw file.

    Update iPad3 from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 Failed and now stuck at restore.-3-select-ipsw-file.png

    and i get this notice

    Update iPad3 from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 Failed and now stuck at restore.-4-erase-restore.png

    and i choose restore. It extracts the file then says "Preparing iPad for Update" then gives me an error message:

    Update iPad3 from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 Failed and now stuck at restore.-5-error-3194.png.

    Here is the page with "More Information" about that error.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4451

    I followed the instructions but don't have any information in the hosts file to edit. I don't mind losing all the stuff on my ipad because i can put anything i had on there, back on there when i get it back up and running, but i don't want to update past 6.1.2 at this time. Biggest problem is that my iPad appears to be useless until i can restore it somehow...all i see is this picture on the iPad screen...

    Update iPad3 from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 Failed and now stuck at restore.-6-plug-into-itunes.png

    Can someone please help me fix my ipad? Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE: I was able to get my device out of Recovery Mode using TinyUmbrella. So that problem is fixed, but i would still like to update to the latest jail-breakable version of iOS for the iPad3, which i understand is 6.1.2. Can anyone tell me what i did wrong in my manual update process?

    Apple doesn't sign iOS 6 anymore. iOS 7 is the only software apple signs.
