How to fix some mysterious problems.

I am trying to restore a plain (never jailbroken, nor no SHSH's saved) 3GS to ios 6.0. It currently has 6.0, its just my friend has no idea what his restriction code is so he cant erase all content.

I tried SHIFT + restore and pointing to 3GS 6.0 IPSW, and it gave Error 3194. Then I tried using tiny umbrella just to see what would happen, then the same action gave me error 11.

Thank you

There is no reason for you to go 6.0 instead of 6.0.1 which is the latest. If modem firmware is NOT 6.15, connect to iTunes and click restore. If 6.15, use redsn0w 9.15b3/extras/even more/restore, choose retain baseband when prompted. Restriction code will still be there if you restore from backup so you should set up as new device.
