    Check your HOSTS file and make sure you are not blocking gs.apple.com.

    Try to launch https://gs.apple.com: It should open the Apple site, and not be redirected to the Cydia server.

    if this redirected to cydia server then

    copy hosts file from this path

    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

    paste on desktop. open this in notepad.

    add this line in the last .

    #74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    in some case this line is there without " #" sign. if this line is there then u simply put" # " at the start of this line

    save this and copy this file and past into this path.

    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\

    replace with existing . yes.

    close and then start the restore process.

    now this will work. Insha Allah.

    Error 3194 implies that your product was subjected to a jailbreak.
