    Default 3gs upgrade problem

    Hi..
    I have a 3gs, 16 gb, with software 3.1.2.
    Its always been jailbroken with blackrain. So, I want to upgrade it to 4.0 so it can be still unlocked, so it gives me an error with itunes, error 3194. Ive tried with snowbreeze and ireb, and its gets stuck on waiting for Ibbs or something like that. With redsnow, it loads everything, reboots, and goes into recovery mode again and nothing happens. The only way of getting rid of recovery is doing blackrain and waiting on the reboot and it will load normally. Ive tried to shift restore with older versions of itunes, and still, nothing. What should I be doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance.

    3194 = no SHSH for the version you are trying to restore or unable to talk to gs.apple.com
    we don't support snb0wbreeze or ireb here, anything from ih8sn0w is not supported or recommended here.

    Sounds like you have a new bootrom 3GS. Only way to be 100% sure is to put the phone into DFU Bootrom - The iPhone Wiki and check.

    If it is new bootrom, then your ONLY solution (if you require unlock) is to use Pwnagetool 4.1 iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.1] this is mac-only software and because you have been using ih8sn0w's unofficial windows ports - I guess you run windows. Reality check. You need a mac to succeed with this process. We refuse to support sn0wbreeze for good reasons.

    Old bootrom.. well you have more options but I still recommend Pwnagetool 4.1

    If you are using blacksn0w as an unlock, you really are on borrowed time. It could send your iPhone into a bootloop tomorrow or next year. Switch to ultrasn0w as soon as you can.

    If you have no backed up SHSH, you are playing russian roulette with your jailbreak, if it ever fails for some reason, you risk losing your chance of unlock. Get a 4.1 SHSH as soon as possible and start jailbreaking with a safety net.

    If you don't require unlock, then you have a lot more options (old or new bootrom) - you can use either greenpois0n or limera1n.
