Stuck in Recovery Mode - Out of things to try that I know
Stuck in recovery after trying to update iOS from 6.1 to 6.1.2 on jailbroken iPhone 5.
I have tried:
iTunes restore in recovery mode - results in unknown error 21
iTunes restore in dfu - says verifying restore, then results in error 1602
TinyUmbrella in recovery mode - exit recovery doesn't work
TinyUmbrella in dfu - fix recovery doesn't work
TinyUmbrella states "currently have set hosts to cydia on exit, and that I should uncheck this and apply changes', but if this is an option, I don't know where to do that.
Please help! Getting pretty frustrated.

Do you have the latest iTunes version? Make sure tinyumbrella didn't automatically redirect your host file from accessing Apple's server to 127.0.0.1 (or some other loopback ip). Then, try to restore under pwned DFU mode but not soft DFU. Good luck

Thanks for the reply. I have the latest iTunes. The redsnow pwned dfu says it's not supported on the iPhone 5. How would I check to see if tinyumbrella if redirecting me? (I don't think it is.) Are there any other options?

1st sorry for the bad english
2nd to sovle this issue you just need to do the following
1- follow the instruction below to enter the DFU mode
Connect your device to your computer.
Make sure iTunes is running and all necessary drivers are installed. During the following process ignore any messages from iTunes. There is no need to click on any messages that might appear.
Do a reset by pressing and holding both home and power buttons for several seconds.
As soon as it resets (screen goes black), immediately release both buttons.
Immediately press and hold the power button again.
Wait until you see the Apple logo plus one second longer.
Now press additionally the home button (still don't let go of the power button).
Wait until the screen disappears (gets black) plus one second longer.
Now release the power button, but keep pressing the home button.
Wait until you hear a "connected" sound from iTunes.
You should now be in DFU mode and your screen should be black. If you see the USB logo instead, try again.
2-while you plugged your iPhone and opening the itunes go to windows/system32/drivers/etc
and open "hosts" file as administrator with notepad
3-remove the last to lines with word apple in it
4-this is the most important action don't close the hosts file
5-while the hosts file still open go to itunes shift+ restore choose the custom ipsw
enjoy the restore with out any errors no 3014 or 1600 or any other error
The most important thing ===> if you closed the hosts file before making the restore the two lines you have deleted will be written automatically so the restore will gave you errors in the verifying step
