How to fix some mysterious problems.

Alright, i've already searched here for a solution and found some with similar problems, but nothing worked for me, so I hope i'll get my beloved iPhone back to life somehow :(

iPhone 3GS 16 GB previously jailbreaked on 5.1.1 untethered and without the unlock thing.
SN *8027 (i guess i made the mistake here with answering no -.- )
Newest redns0w software
iTunes up to date
Win7 everyhing up to date

I updated my iPhone with iTunes to 6.0.1.
jailbreaked it with 6.0.0, restarted it to get Cydia back on the screen. After that everything looks fine and worked. I installed aptbackup to get back all my apps. So far so good, it forced to restart Springboard and it went to the white screen.
So now I'm stuck there, I can bring it into pwned DFU and iTunes detects it in recovery mode.
If I want to downgrade to 5.1.1 it just goes to the point where iTunes says "waiting for iPhone" and it goes from black to white and nothing happens. iTunes gives me the error 3194 when I try to restore with the 6.0.1 one from iTunes. I double checked the host file but there is no apple line in it.
I tried another USB port, but no difference
I tried everything, recovery fix, just boot, restore but everything ends with the white screen. No apple logo, nothing, just white.
Battery is fully loaded.
What I want is to bring it back to life and back to 5.1.1. (I don't want tethered)
I do not want to open it to unplug the battery. So do I have to wait until its empty?
Isn't there a patch for those who clicked the wrong answer? I think that was my mistake,'cause I didn't really understood first what they mean with new and old, and I'm not sure what I've clicked there.
What if the draining battery thing does not work?

Go to Extras ? SHSH ? Stitch in redsn0w. Click IPSW and browse for the iOS 5.1.1 firmware you downloaded, then click Cydia. If you have SHSHes for 5.1.1, redsn0w will create a custom firmware you can restore to in pwned DFU mode (enter it via Extras ? Pwned DFU in redsn0w).

I did this and it gives me error 3194

3194 means that either you don't have SHSH (requires stitching for 5.x) or your hosts file is pointing in the wrong direction, or as Apple would say you are trying to install an ipsw that is no longer being signed.

The host file is empty. I have iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore and when I click remote to stitch it creates the custom firmware. I had SHSHes from 3.something up to 6.0.1 stored on this phone.

I get "One or more blobs rejected by the Cydia server. Error with SHSH blobs!"

Reboot computer, put phone in DFU or Recovery, and connect to iTunes. Do a complete restore to 6.0.1

It doesn't work, it goes to "waiting for iPhone" and the screen goes white (at least without any errors).

I just wanted to let you know that I've unplugged the battery and restored the iPhone.
It's now back on 6.0.1
It still gives me error 3194 when trying to downgrade to 5.1.1.
I'll wait for an untethered jailbreak now...
