How to fix some mysterious problems.

My device is iPhone 5 (A1428). Was jailbreaking with evasi0n, firmware 7.0.6. After finishing jailbreak on PC, phone stops responding on apple logo and shining with colors. When enter DFU (no screen or anything), iTunes doesn't allow to upgrade to 8.1.2 or 8.2. Unknown error 3194. SHSH didn't save, so TinyUmbrella doesn't help... Are there any options for me?

TinyUmbrella doesn't work past iOS 4 anyway, so forget that (an update is being worked on, but as of now it doesn't exist). If you want to restore, you can only go to 8.1.3 or 8.2, neither of which are currently jailbreakable. Make sure your iTunes is up to date.

Same situation here. It just holding on with "Waiting iPhone" message in iTunes and nothing happens. Both as for 8.1.3 as for 8.2.
