How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have successfully jail broken my iphone 4 ios 6.01 and now i am trying to do a fresh restore using itunes. I have tried performing the restore using redsnw but i keep getting itunes error 3194 and 1600 and 1601 ... fixing one problem by modifying host files results in causing another problem. i fix 3194 i get 1600 and other way round ... can someone please help me to advise steps to do a fresh restore on my phone..

If i run tiny umbrella ans start TSS server, i do not get 3194 error, but i guess this makes an entry in host file to point to cydia server which trigers 1600 /1601 error

Is there any better way i can do a fresh restore .. please help !!

Remove any from your Hosts. Make sure all the options in TinyUmbrella are unchecked. Reboot your computer. Afterwards, place your device in DFU mode. Open iTunes and it should say your device is in Recovery Mode. Click Restore and it should go through. Then afterwards rejailbreak with redsn0w.

The reason you get error 3194 is cause your hosts are wrong.

TinyUmbrella is only for restoring iOS 4, it's useless for iOS 5 or iOS 6, it will in fact prevent you from restoring. Forget TinyUmbrella and TSS, you should not be using them at all. Click and tell me if you see a page saying "This page is just a placeholder..."
