Hi, I've been trying the last few days to update my jailbroken iPhone 5 from 7.0.4 to ios 8 maybe 8.4 or at least something more update than the ios I have now if it possible. I've been getting error 3194 every time i try and update it. Any solutions? Thanks

There is no "maybe" involved. You can restore to 8.4 or 8.4.1, nothing else. You should act quickly, the 8.4 option will not be available for long.

issues that might cause this Error:
1-the Hosts file: Delete it or delete the line with Notepad, more info :
2-Firewall: just disable it and try again!
3-Corrupt ipsw: this might happen a lot so just download it again or manually and try again
