my iphone wont restore in itunes
Hello, here is my problem, my jailbroken Iphone was acting wierd today, as in 3g and wifi wasnt working, and my cydia was showing some error with sources, so i decided that it was good idea to put it in dfu mode, and just click restore in itunes, and here is the tricky part, itunes shows me that it couldnt restore my device, with error 3194, but wait, there is more, my iphone now wont display anything on screen, as in black screen no matter what i try to do. i searched for answers on google, dl`d tinyumbrella, but its like it doesnt see my iphone, or i think it doesnt because in the log it says things like "02/13/2013 16:42:33.742 DFU Device connected", but it doenst show my phone on the list on the left side.
any help would be appreciated, if you need any more information from me, tell me what it is and i will deliver.
i was late to edit my orginal post so im sorry for double posting, here is some more information you may need
iTunes version - 184.108.40.206

The error you're receiving is the -3194, stating that your device is not eligible for the requested build. Read up on the SHSH link in my signature to see about what they are, but the short answer is that if you do not have a qualifying SHSH for 5.x and an SHSH for 4.x, you can only restore to iOS 6.1 right now (or 6.1.1 on the 4S).
What version of iOS were you trying to restore to? Downgrades or restores to non-current iOS are very difficult these days (and can be impossible if you do not have the required data/SHSH files)
If your phone is bootlooped now from the restore process, you can download tinyumbrella and try to kick it out of recovery, which should get you back to a booted state with the previous version of iOS (it shouldn't erase the phone until it confirms the version of iOS you're restoring will restore). If that doesn't work, plug the phone into your computer and then put it into DFU mode (do a quick forum search for instructions on how to access DFU mode from your respective model device).
If the phone doesn't restore in DFU mode to the latest version of iOS, publish another restore log of that attempt and we can try and help further.
