    I am on vacation, and for some reason just had to update my iPhone 4 to the new update 4.1. Well guess what, it will not update!!!!

    My itunes is the latest one, so I even deleted itunes and re-installed it, restarted my computer and iPhone, then tried to restore it again. No go.

    At first itunes was giving me a 2002 error, now I believe it's something like 1004 error. What can I do? There is no apple store where I am located. Please give me some ideas!!!!

    Have you tried a DFU mode restore? Is the device in recovery mode?

    Have you ever edited your "hosts" file?

    I was getting the same error (1004) until I went in and removed Saurik's server from my list of hosts. Seems Apple's not too keen on us skirting their rules anymore.

    Wow that is a great thought. I had this same problem and used recboot on a mac to fix it, but now I wish i had seem this post first and tried it. i'm going to mention this in the other long thread about this issue.
