How to fix some mysterious problems.


I'm trying to restore to factory firmware (version 7.1.2) but whenever I do, I get an error 3194.

It's definitely not the hosts file.

I tried downloading TinyUmbrella, but I'm either doing something wrong , or there are options missing ( there is no "Start TSS Server" option anywhere.

So I'm stuck here. Any article i find either says to restore through iTunes or use TinyUmbrella and neither of these options work.

Any help is appreciated. I can provide any additional info needed, I just don't know what could be relevant.


PS : just to clarify, the current firmware version I'm trying to restore to is the same as the one installed right now (7.1.2).

You cannot do this. 7.1.2 is not signed. Does not matter if you are currently on 7.1.2, using tiny, using redsn0w, using itunes, it simply cannot be done

What are my options to get an un-jailbroken phone? Should I just upgrade to the latest firmware? (sorry I'm new to this...)

cydia impactor (if it works on ios 7), or restoring in itunes to 8.4.1

Impactor is only for iOS 8
