    I have jailbroken iphone 4 firmware 4.2.3 (i think so) then i want to update it to 5.1.1 orginal firmware... so i decide to Format it by go Setting>General>Reset>Erase All Files and Setting.... After that my iphone won't turn on... it's stuck at apple logo.. But then i try to restore with 5.1.1 orginal firmware in Recovery mode... It say error 3194, then i fixed it by add "74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com" to hosts file, Then i restore again now it's error 21, I tried everything disable firewall and antivirus, change usb port, change computer still doesn't work...


    Any advice?

    The error 3194 happens when iTunes tries to validate the downloaded restore file (.ipsw) and is unable to reach Apple?s validation servers.

    Just simply try restoring using a unused/unconnected computer (A computer you have never used before). Before you restore, turn iphone off and then hold home button down and then while the home button is pressed down plug in the cable to connect to itunes. The phone should be in recovery mode. Then simply restore :D
