    Hello, my Iphone 3GS has been bricked and is stuck on the screen where it says i need to plug-in my phone to itunes, which means i cant enter the homescreen or do anything at all. I have no idea what happend to it. Its on 4.2.1 JB unthered.

    I have tried restoring it, both by just clicking the "Shift-restore" and just "Restore" selecting 4.3.1 Been getting 3194 errors from both methodes, and yes i have edited my HOSTS file with both "74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com" and "74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com". I have checked and read videos how to fix the 3194, still havent worked?

    How do i fix this? :/

    I just tried updating to 4.3.1, but when 70% of the update hit, i got the 1015 error?

    do you have an official sim card for it? if not you can download custom pwnage tool bundles with activation support but youll have to restore to it. its a custom firmware. i believe thats the only way to activate 4.3.1 without official sim.

    yea lol thought about that after wards. your going to need pwnge tool bundles. or you can downgrade if you have blobs.

    download tiny umbrella and click your device in the left when it shows up and see if it saves and blobs. if you can get it downgrading then you can have an untethered jailbreak as well as hacktivation without bundles.
