Hey guys, I have so many different problems right now that I'm am totally terrified that my phone is completely done for. EDIT: Here's the link for the tar file I used to try and re-odin my phone, also updated link in description Thanks for the direction.
Another error at this time is, "Unable to Check for Update.
An error occurred whiole checking for a software update." This again is attributed to Apple servers going down with huge traffic.
In such a case, just plug Lightning cable to your i OS device and start charging it.
Once the device is charged properly, you can try downloading the OTA firmware, reports i Phonehacks.
If you don’t have an entry in the host file for “gs.apple.com” and still getting Error 3194, then temporarily disable the firewall or anti-virus software on your computer, as it is quite possible that they’re preventing i Tunes from connecting to Apple servers.
You may also get the “This device isn’t eligible for the requested build” error message if you’re trying to update or downgrade your device with a firmware file that Apple has stopped signing.
If that fails to work, then you can try to manually install i OS 8.1 update via i Tunes on your device.

The error says, "i Phone update software update server could not be contacted," which suggests that Apple's servers are overloaded due to the heavy traffic cotributed by i Phone and i Pad owners who are currently trying to update i OS 8.1.
I tried using ODIN to re-flash the same tar file I used to root my device ( I used this tar: ) and it wouldn't work, quickly coming back as FAILED.
Then, my latest error popped up: "An error has occurred while updating the device software.
Unable to install updat error Following the roll-out, a number of users are reported to have faced an error while installing i OS 8.1 OTA on their i OS running devices, which says "Unable to install update".
