    anyone else experience the same?

    first time round with the update to 4.1 my phone got stuck with the install of the update and gave me error 1004. i had to take my phone to apple and got a replacement.

    same thing happened with the 4.2 update and this time i got error 1013. i did some research and got it fixed by opening terminal and amending a line of text in the host file.

    so this is quite obviously going to happen again with the next update and i'm wondering whether there isn't something on my macbook which causes this problem. if anyone's got advice that'll be appreciated.

    another note!

    with my first phone i tried using Tiny Umbrella to kick my phone out of recovery mode (unsuccessfully so).

    it seems like the program modified some files, something to do with baseband, so i reckon this is what is causing the problem with all the updates.

    is there a way i can remove absolutely all Tiny Umbrella files so it won't affect updates in future?

    Ok friend this problem is normal!!! Follow this....

    Due to the rush of releasing this iOS version, a bug like this is bound to come out. This has been reported to Apple but if you don’t intend to wait any longer, please see the following for the instructions. Methods on Fixing the Error 1013 are available for Mac and PC.

    7. Save the file by hitting CONTROL+O.

    8. Exit the nano editor.

    9. Restore your iPhone.
