How to fix some mysterious problems.


I had jailbroken my iPod Touch 4g ages ago. Most of the apps I had (or wanted) needed an update, so I decided to update to 6.1.2.

I backed it all up and then tried doing a restore, got the 3194 error. Used Tiny Umbrella, saved blobs, then got error 11 from iTunes, then 1600... now it's stuck on a Connect to iTunes logo.

I check iFaith, and it said the blobs for 6.1.2 are invalod, but 6.1.3 is valid. 6.0/6.1 etc are invalid too. iREB didn't help much.

Redsn0w says it's in recovery mode. How to I get it to 6.1.2? Or do I go to 6.1.3? I don't mind not having a jailbreak or losing data (I can run a backup from iTunes... right?), I really need this fixed.

Thanks in advance!

You cannot get 6.1.2 without valid blobs which you cannot get now. Just click restore in iTunes and you will be able to get 6.1.3.

After I update to 6.1.3, will I be able to restore from the back up I made about 2 hours ago?

Alright, I'll update it to 6.1.3, hopefully it works and doesn't give me another error. Thanks! I will comment again if anything goes wrong.
