    I updated my 4S from itunes to 6.0, but when the phone restarted, it got stuck on Apple logo and remained their with a working logo under Apple logo. An error appeared on itunes with a number 3194, i Lock+Home button resetted the phone as nothing happened for long, tried restoring it again but no use. Same process happened for every restore with different error number everytime. Tried restoring /downgrading to 5.1.1, but of no use. Its not restoring or upgrading at all. Any help?
