How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, I've had this phone since December of 2012. All has been well, except well that my 1 year warranty is about to run, and I've got a phone whose sleep/wake button does not work anymore. I was able to get it into DFU mode one last time, but I'm still just recently getting error code 3194 in iTunes. I've tried 3 different computers, and on two of them, I've gotten 3194, and a couple times I have gotten it waiting and sitting at the "waiting for iPhone for restore..." or whatever it is that it says after it unpacks the firmware.

I am currently running firmware 6.1 on my iPhone(GSM) via evasi0n jailbreak. I can not seem to unjailbreak the phone, and get an error message when trying to uninstall the package from Cydia. So I thought DFU mode might be the answer. Not. Still getting error messages. So I go ahead and try to wipe all the data from the settings option, that did not work either.

I'm currently stuck with a brick right now!!! :( Someone please chime in as to help me restore my iPhone 5 to STOCK firmware! I don't care which version. I've tried clearing my DNS, editing my hosts folder, and countless other things. I will compile the error message I receive upon attempting to uninstall the jailbreak via Cydia, once my phone reboots from a dead battery...

I'm even willing as far to send someone money via paypal for helping me... Thank you.

You should never press "Erase all Content and Settings" on a jailbroken device. This just puts you in a boot loop.

Unlikely to be hosts issue but what do you see at

@iAdam1n We fixed this on IRC already. He's got his iPhone restored now.

It was a hosts file issue, by the way.
