    Hey, so I set my iphone 5 in DFU mode and now it is stuck. I get the (-1) error whenever i try to restore from itunes. I have tried everything I can think of (tiny umbrella, recBoot, redsn0w) Anyone have any ideas ?

    What version are you trying to restore? If anything other than 6.1.3, it won't work.

    Here's the link to the error code you're getting:


    On that page it says to try to restore your phone two more times. If you have already done that and if your phone is under warranty, you may be able get it repaired or replaced.

    You cannot use a custom or No BB IPSW with iPhone 5 (trying that could cause the -1 error)
    Reboot the computer
    Change USB port and USB cable

    Try the restore while not in DFU mode (as you are in recovery mode and iTunes should see that)
