How to fix some mysterious problems.

My iPhone 4, running iOS6 is stuck in a boot loop. I tried to jailbreak it using the newest version of Redsn0w, a tethered break, and it never worked. Tried booting tethered, tried re-breaking, tried opening iTunes to restore. Nothing has worked. Thanks for the help, JJ

Redsn0w or jailbreaking will not fix a bootloop. Only a restore can fix that.

and if itunes restore didnt work, an error it gave might be helpful

Same thing happened to me, I got error 3194. I don't know how to fix it.

Is the data on the phone have to be saved? If it does, then we have a long intricate road, or is it backs up or disposable data?
