I had been running jailbroken ios7 on my iPad for a long time. Last month I decided to update to 8.4 Downloading the update from itunes failed a few times so I grabbed the file from apple servers myself
When I tried to restore using the ipsw file, itunes gave me
3014 error. I tried again next day, same error.
I'm running windows 10 x64 and I have:
- Made sure my HOSTS file is not causing it. There is definitely nothing apple related in there.
- Checked my firewall rules, disabled the firewall. That did not help either
- performed restore process multiple times with no luck
- Tried pinging
gs.apple.comfrom another computer with windows 7.. it times out just the same
Its been more than a month now and my iPad is just sitting there...
Itunes network dianosis shows me this -
Firewall Information Windows Firewall is off. Connection attempt to Apple web site was successful. Connection attempt to browsing iTunes Store was successful. Connection attempt to purchasing from iTunes Store was successful. Connection attempt to iPhone activation server was successful. Connection attempt to firmware update server was unsuccessful. The network connection timed out. Connection attempt to Gracenote server was successful. Last successful iTunes Store access was 2015-08-16 13:05:38.
The server I cannot connect to is
gs.apple.com. I believe that's what causing itunes to throw the error (3014)
My iPhone can recieve updates just fine over the same network. I'm stumped, can someone help me out, am i missing something?
If there's a way to update without the itunes server-check I'd love to hear it. Methods involving jailbreak are welcome
