I have an iPad 1 with iOS 4.2.1 and I'm trying to jailbreak it to the latest 4.3.3 and I keep getting error 3194 at the beginning of the process. The only thing unclear to me so far is if I need to update the software through iTunes alone to 4.3.3 before I follow all the described steps, since it doesn't say anything about that. Also My computer runs W7 64bit, so should I run the compatibility mode on just redsn0w or also for the ispw? I'm sorry the ignorance it's only my first time trying to jailbreak, I will appreciate any tips.
