You might have noticed that during Custom or stock iOS 4 Firmware restore your restore stops while giving you 3194 error in iTunes. If you are well conversant with Jailbreak these errors are routine. These errors might show up while you are restoring a custom firmware made using Pwnage Tool or Snowbreeze. These errors are related to incomplete SHSH request when during restore process requested SHSH are for properly redirected to Apple or Cydia hosts or when or when port 80 and port 443 are blocked. This bug is due to problem in Cydia’s backend servers and will be removed soon.

If your iPhone, iPad or iPod is throwing error 3194 just follow the procedure below to fix them,

  1. Download TinyUmbrella for Windows or Mac.
  2. Open TinyUmbrella, goto Advance Tab and uncheck “Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit” option
  3. Save settings and exit
Now you will be able to sucessfully restore your firmware from iTunes without 3194 error. Also look at other Error code removal options here if problem is not resolved.
Error discription in Apple support is as fol,
Errors 3000-3999 (3002, 3004, 3013, 3014, 3018, 3164, 3194, and so on): Error codes in the 3000 range generally mean that iTunes cannot contact the gs.apple.com server on ports 80 or 443. This may be because out-of-date or incorrectly configured security or firewall software is interfering, an old version of iTunes is installed, an entry in your hosts file redirecting requests to gs.apple.com (see error 1004 above), or because of your Internet proxy settings. If you are using a proxy, try without using one or with a known-good network. If that does not resolve the issue, follow iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues. Error 3014 may indicate that you need to free up more disk space on the computer before trying to restore again. Error 3194 most likely indicates you do not have the latest version of iTunes installed Update to the latest version of iTunes.

      You don’t need SHSH blobs in your mobile rather they are saved on Cydia Servers. Therefore simply downgrade using TinyUmbrella
