How to fix some mysterious problems.

I used redsnow then evasion (regret it) and then cydian and evasion jailbreak app was there. They both didnt work and just flashed

-Symptoms: Safari doesn't works, Can't restore iphone via itunes due to error 3194, Can't change hosts in windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts due to a safety program I can't disable (k9 web protection), Iphone gets playback errors on all videos, online games when connected make gamecentre pop up and makes me log in but continues to load and never actually logs in (can't cancel either), tiny umbrella won't help me restore phone, BTW MY IPHONE WON'T RESTORE NORMALLY BECAUSE...It isn't able to update to 6.1.3

All i need is for something to restore it to factory setting (previous backups still have cydia on it and same symptoms), or.. I can get something to force it to update to IOS 6.1.3 and then able to reset via Itunes, Please I am frustrated and annoyed that I cant just reset it all with itunes and I really need someone who can help.

Have you tried booting your iDevice into restore mode? Because that usually works.

I think i need either something to restore iphone or something to update itt so i can restore with itunes

Go to this website---> . Get iOS 6.0. Save as ipsw. Use the recovery method as described earlier . and select the previously downloaded ipsw. If that doesn't work use redsn0w to go into pwnd dfu mode.

(06 Jul '13, 17:45) KevinDaJailbreaker KevinDaJailbreaker's gravatar image

restore to that ipsw. download with google chrome.

(06 Jul '13, 17:47) KevinDaJailbreaker KevinDaJailbreaker's gravatar image

you only know what kind of iphone he has and you are just randomly throwing out try this try that.

What error in itunes is very important on this one, and i dont see it asked or mentioned what error. I bet its 3194 and even on 6.1.3, and thats caused by host file editing, if you click and see cydia, you can download ipsw's forever and its not going to change that error

BTW theiphoneguy I explained it was error 3194 in my question.

(06 Jul '13, 23:21) JollyRoger JollyRoger's gravatar image

ya i musta missed that part :p its odd your hosts file are correct but still getting that. What is the name of the ipsw file?

(06 Jul '13, 23:27) theiphoneguy ♦ theiphoneguy's gravatar image

k9 web protection. My money says that's the culprit.

Try the suggestions .. also disable any firewalls and peerblock (fully exit peerblock) if you run that program.. yesterday it stopped me from connecting to apples servers for a restore.. good luck

also try using someone else computer - pref one that doesn't have iTunes on it or at the very least one that YOU haven't used iTunes on with your physical phone.. sometimes that can cause an error.. try to delete some temp files in some directory that i forget the name of.. maybe delete iTunes from control panel and then run a search on your computer for apple, iTunes, etc and delete the files that lay in your appdata folder related to the program.. but beware if you delete something that looks like an apple program that isn't .. you could potentially break another program.. so make sure it was left behind from iTunes and not something important ..

Might try making your own question instead of tagging it on someone elses that is having a very different problem
