Hello Guys,

I have a 3GS with firmware 4.3.1(8G4) and baseband 6.15.0. I wanted to install 5.0.1 today and I got the 3194 error. After trying everything, I ended up here:

I have SHSH saved with tiny umbrealla for 4.3.1 firmware.

Do I have any chance getting 5.0.1 on the device or I have to wait for 5.1 untethered jailbreak?

If you had not saved 5.0.1 shsh there is no going to it. Have you checked in cydia to see if you have more shsh saved?

Thank you for the answer. That is what I thought?

How can I perform the check you are talking about?

see the green numbers up there? That is what your saved shsh would look like.

download tinyumbrella , then go to advanced tab and tick the box "get shsh from cydia" then click on save all shsh now , if you get them lucky if not you can only go to 5.1 :/

Well, I've now 5.0.1 saved as well. I've ipad1 JB 4.2.1 and I'd like to install 5.0.1: updating and/or restoring seem to be unlucky chances (not eligible device).

Any hints please?

In order to restore to iOS 5.0.1, you have to use custom firmware with your SHSH blobs stitched into the firmware. Here's a guide that should get you started.

@armybot the hints are in the answer by @therealcmac up above....

@britta many thanks. The guide you suggested me is referring to a downgrade. Mine is still 4.2.1. I suppose that it'd be the same. Could you confirm that?

(11 Mar '12, 15:53) armybot armybot's gravatar image

Yes, the process is the same.
