    If you connect your iphone to itunes and try to restore does it still show the update arrow?
    If so keep trying with the process. Mine was caught in this update failure loop but eventually it succeeded on probably the 20th attempt.

    Check your firewall on your computer, temporarily switch it off while your attempting the restore as one of the failure codes i had was a communications error. I also had numerous error code 1 and -1.

    Good luck

    Keep persevering, pretty sure i had that code as well.
    Mine went through restore process as you describe, failing at last stage.

    The other thing i did was to set up a new apple ID account to go through restore process, once my phone was up and running i did a restore with my original ID.

    I had the same problem, you need to restore without DFU

    Make sure your hosts file isn't pointing to Cydia
    Go into DFU mode
    Restore in iTunes

    Don't use redsnow, don't use tinyumbrella, just use the standard Apple tools. You can rejailbreak after that using evasi0n.

    It's almost impossible to brick an iOS device.

    Doesn't matter. Just try a friend's computer. Just plug it in and hit restore. If not, try holding power+home for 10 seconds while plugged in (to turn it off) and hold the home button until it pops up. (to get into stable recovery)
