    Help Required. Unable to update to 3GS to 5.1.1 from 4.3.2 - Details of 4 different attempts inside

    I have been trying to update my iPhone 3GS from 4.3.2 to 5.1.1 with absolutely no luck. Here are my details:
    - iPhone 3GS 4.3.2, Baseband 05.16.02
    - Using redsn0w 0.9.15b2
    - Blobs: have blobs from 3.1.2 to 5.1.1
    - hosts: All apple references are commented out, gs.apple.com redirects to apple placeholder site

    Here are some different methods I have tried (which I documented), and outcomes:

    1.
    Create custom ipsw (5.1.1), stitch my blobs (5.1.1) into it
    Enter PwnedDFU mode
    Open iTunes, attempt to restore the custom ipsw
    "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (3194)

    2.
    iPhone on/normal
    Open iTunes, attempt to restore the custom ipsw
    "XXX iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (3194)

    3.
    Using redsn0w 0.9.15b2
    Extras -> Even More -> Restore
    preserve baseband = Yes
    place in Pwned DFU mode
    Tried custom (stitched) ipsw - "Found none of the expected files to stich in IPSW: xxxxxxxxx"

    4.
    redsn0w 0.9.15b2
    Extras -> Even More -> Restore
    preserve baseband = No
    place in Pwned DFU mode
    Tried stock 5.1.1 ipsw - "Found Device in DFU mode instead of Recovery mode"


    I am pulilng my hair out here, have I done something supremely silly or wrong? Any help to update this iPhone would be greatly appreciated.

      Its not restoring because when Apple releases a new firmware new blobs are uploaded to the server, and since you didn't bother to upload yours to cydia it will not update your phone because the blobs are there, You try running TinyUmbrella TSS server to try and trick itunes or editing your Hosts file
