    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


    paste on desktop. open this in notepad.

    add this line in the last .

    # 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.


    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.
