First question would be why is it stuck in recovery mode? Is the phone JB,is it sim free?

It is sim free right now and it is not JB.

Than, if you don't need JB, restore it with iTunes, you will get 6.1.3 and everything fine again.

Restoring it with iTunes does not work, I get an unknown error (-1) at the end of the upgrade , tried tiny umbrella, does not work either because it seems tiny umbrella cant find the phone. I would JB if that would make my phone work again. As it is now no restoring works with any of the programs named above.

Try making sure tiny umbrella is not pointing the update to cydia and restart your pc. Then try iTunes again.

-1 is usually hardware issue, but try several times, change USB port, if possible PC........

I have tried maybe up to 50 times on my three computers and one powerbook. Nothing works, so thats why I was wondering if a JB would help but since it might be a hardware issue that won´t help me either???

The only things I'm aware of causing a -1 error are using the "last ditch" method to prevent baseband update on the iPhone 4, or a hardware fault of some kind.
Since you've tried on multiple computers with multiple cables, I'm tempted to think it's a hardware issue with your phone, regrettably.

I found this on another forum...
Major, major tip here. It's the battery.
I had this problem in an iphone whereby I could get it in to DFU mode and itunes would detect it, but I couldn't successfully restore. I got the exact same message as you.
I opened it up to find the battery cable had become desoldered from the board. I resoldered the battery and it fired right up once I plugged it in for a while.
So this fault is either a dead battery or faulty soldering / connection
Since I was charging my battery when it happened and it seems to be a hardware issue i will try this!

Why don't you change a new connect wire and try another computer again.

Changed the battery to a new one and got the same message, -1, when I tried to upgrade without the battery i got other errormessages 21 and 3014. Then I tried the new battery again and for ten seconds it was just charging the battery before it went into recovery mode again.
