    I have tried EVERYTHING:

    - got itunes 10, didnt work
    - tried the latest software (i think its 4.2?) didnt work
    - tried using 3.1.3 which is what it originally had when i bought it, didnt work.
    - tried putting it into DFU mode and do the above two steps, DIDNT WORK
    - even tried following the steps in this link: http://deals-n-discounts.com/error-3194-on-restoring-3gs/
    but i couldnt save the hosts file.


    I desperately need to restore my ipod to default factory settings to get rid of the jailbreak, because it has a hardware error (dock connector screws up) and i need to send it back to apple, but NOTHING WORKS. When it verifies the restore, it comes up with a messaage saying "Could not restore. An unknown error occured." and the error code is 3194.


    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help, ive only had this ipod for 3 months and i really need apple to fix it, and really need to get rid of the jailbreak.

    THANKYOU!

    I'm glad its working, But for the hosts part, you need to open it with notepad and save it.
