Basically, Before i updated it worked fine, Now i have updated it just comes up no service. I have downgraded it back to 4.1. but now cant update it to 5.1.1 again as i keep getting the 3194 error on itunes. Will there be a fix for ios6 to sort the no service issue out?

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6

    Since downgrading the iOS is not supported by Apple, and you seem to have found another way to do so, this might be the reason for your problem.

    Sorry, but problems with jailbroken devices can't be discussed here, due to the Terms of Use.

     

    This device is not eligible for the requested build (Also sometimes displayed as an "error 3194")

    1. Update to the latest version of iTunes.
    2. Third-party security software or router security settings can also cause this issue. To resolve this, followTroubleshooting security software issues.
    3. Downgrading to a previous version of iOS is not supported. If you have installed software to performunauthorized modifications to your iOS device, that software may have redirected connections to the update server (gs.apple.com) within the Hosts file. Uninstall the unauthorized modification software from the computer.
    4. Edit out the "gs.apple.com" redirect from your hosts file, and then restart the computer for the host file changes to take affect. For steps to edit the Hosts file and allow iTunes to communicate with the update server, see iTunes: Troubleshooting iTunes Store on your computer, iPhone, iPad, or iPod—follow steps under the heading Blocked by configuration (Mac OS X / Windows) > Rebuild network information > The hosts file may also be blocking the iTunes Store. If you do not uninstall the unauthorized modification software prior to editing the hosts file, that software may automatically modify the hosts file again on restart.
    5. Avoid using an older or modified .ipsw file. Try moving the current .ipsw file (see Advanced Steps > Rename, move, or delete the iOS software file (.ipsw) below for file locations), or try restoring in a new user to ensure that iTunes downloads a new .ipsw.
