    Default Can't upgrade

    Hi there,
    I've got an iPhone 3Gs, not sure if I have old or new bootrom.
    It's currently running on 3.1.2 tethered jailbreaked with blackra1n.
    I want to upgrade to 4.0(.1), but everytime I use upgrade in iTunes it gives error 3194, even when i use restore instead and in recovery mode.

    Summary, I can't upgrade/restore without getting an error, not even when in recovery or DFU mode.

    Cydia sais I got SHSH for 3.1.3 , 4.0, 4.0.1

    Any of you has got any idea of what to do?

    Are you trying to restore a stock or a custom firmware? Worth mentioning that the 3GS cannot restore a custom firmware in DFU mode.

    You'll need to do the following to get to 4.x on your device:

    1) Edit your hosts file to add saurik's server (add this line):
    Code:
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    2) Sync your phone with iTunes, ensure there is a good backup.
    3) Copy your iPhone backup to a new directory.
    4) Download the 4.0 or 4.0.1 .ipsw from iClarified here: iClarified - iPhone - Where To Download iPhone Firmware Files From
    5) Shift-Restore your phone and point to the .ipsw you downloaded.
    --OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED: You CAN set up as a restore from your old phone but you can encounter issues with battery life, pictures, etc., so this is more recommended than that.--
    6) If your phone ends in Recovery Mode, download the Firmware Umbrella and click the 'Kick device out of Recovery mode' button from here: http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/
    7) When completed, set the phone up as a new phone.
    8) Use any of the iPhone Backup extractor tools to extract your SMS / Call History / etc. databases and store off to the side.
    9) Once you have completed the sync to your now 4.0.1 device, open safari and visit JailbreakMe
    10) Once you have jailbroken, use SSH/DiskAid/iFunBox/iPhoneBrowser to replace the SMS and Call History databases, pictures, etc.

    You should now be running a jailbroken 4.0/4.0.1 w/ Cydia installed. If you need an unlock, add ultrasn0w.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    What is the host file called?
    Where do I find it?
    I assume I can edit it with Notepad or Word???

    Default location in Windows is C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts

    Not sure 100% where it is on Mac, but a quick google search will tell you.

    You can edit this with any editor (notepad, etc.)

    Good luck!

    On 10.5 or 10.6 you can either edit /etc/hosts or use the more modern dscl utility (achieves the same effect but is the apple approved way)

    OS X 10.5.7 - /etc/hosts, no! dscl, yes! Synapse

    I am running Vin7 Pro 64 bits. Did a search in the C:\Windows and all subfolders and I found 585 files with 'host' and 17 with 'hosts', but none of the latter seemed to be the file to edit

    No.

    The specific filename is this:

    C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts

    The file is 'hosts', 100% certain sure.

    Normally the path is C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts as n1ckn4m3 mentions, however some installations of windows can be non-standard or not according to the defaults.

    On all versions of windows 64 bit or 32 bit - regardless of where windows was installed to and what drive it was installed on.

    Pressing the windows-key and r (this brings up the run a command window) tying the path
    Code:
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc
    then click on OK. This will always open the correct folder that contains the hosts file.

    Olethros and n1ckn4m,
    thank you both. Of course you were both right... I had found the file "hosts", but at part for some 'sample' code it was empty and I thought it was the wrong file.
    I pasted the code <74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com> at the end of the samples, saved it, followed the steps n1ckn4m wrote below.
    iTunes has restored my iPhone, sinced all my music, contacts etc.
    All working sweet.

    THANKS GUYS!!

    Older versions of windows need the loopback address - 127.0.0.1 in the hosts file for windows to work properly.

    On recent versions of windows, the hosts file is by default empty.
