    everytime a new update comes out for my iphone 4 and i click update it always comes back with an error message and after a while it some how manages to work itself out and update.

    Not this time though as i have been trying for days and it keeps saying error 1013 and just now 1603.

    does anyone have any idea what i can do? i downloaded the firmware through itunes and i am using a macbook if that is any help

    This is my response to another thread:

    Also if you have TinyUmbrella, you could possibly try selecting your iPhone and using the button that kicks it out of recovery and maybe the other button that fixes it. I'm not sure how well it works though since it didn't work for me.

    I just got error 1013 also, but my situation maybe different. About 12 hours ago, iTunes could no longer read my phone and it says it detects an iPhone but it needs to be restored.

    When i get the 1013 error, i follow the steps mentioned in the previous post. Also after modifying the host file , i close itunes, do a command+Q on your macbook and then restart itunes and do the restore process. it generally works for me. Hope it helps.

    I was at least able to get it back to 4.2.1 with tiny umbrella and green poison. That hosts thing doesn't work for me. I try to save it but it keeps saying that is can't be saved.

    have you done the link i just gave?

    When i tried the copy/paste method, it failed. The "sudo" way worked.

    But there are 2 of them. Both of them have a bunch of number in front of them. One has then # already.

    yeah, comment the last one out too. The # means it's commented out.


    P.S. That is the reason you're getting 1013. :)

    So if I comment both of them out, no error 1013? I'll try it out.

    EDIT: Success. Thank you, sir.
