    Okay, I was supposed to restore my iPad mini because I am selling it to someone. I clicked restore from the usual iTunes process, and it failed for some reason. Then, it got stuck to this. I download the full iPad 2,5 6.1.3 ipsw from Apple via Safari and I did option + click. It "extracts" and after that, it fails. Error 3004 is present.

    I have done the terminal "fix" and the hosts file thing. Doesn't work.

    Right now, it is stuck on Connect to iTunes and it's basically bricked. I need to give this to the new owner the next day and a fix would be gladly appreciated. Visiting an Apple store isn't an option since I live in a country without one.

    It's working fine already. Friend dropped by with his laptop. It was a life-saver. There must be something wrong with my Mac. :confused:
