    I has similar problems to many of you however here are the steps I took to solve the problem:
    Using a Jailbroken 4.1 iphone 4, upgrading to non jailbroken 4.2.1 - TinyUmbrella would not Exit Recovery Mode. Using Mac OS

    #1 - Find your hosts file located: root/private/ect/hosts
    #2 - Move your Hosts file to your desktop, otherwise you can not save without changing the directory permissions.
    #3 - Open the desktop copy of the hosts file
    #4 - before the line 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com add a #, it should look like #74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    #5 - Save the file
    #6 Move the file back into root/private/ect/hosts and replace the existing file
    #7 restore your iphone - presto.

    For some reason I was not able to get my hosts file to save using terminal, but this method worked flawlessly.

    I FINALY SOVED IT!!!
    and thx REPUGnant but that wasn't it...
    It is so simple!!! Just restore from another computer! A computer that hasn't been tampered with before. No tinyumbrella no nothing! Just enter DFU and hit "restore" in iTunes, and let it download on it's own.
    Don't mess with the host file... If u had the same problem as me (I got errors 3194, 1004, 1013, and 1014) and u tried every thing else, THIS SHOULD WORK!

    Default error 1013
    I received the error 1013 when updating my iphone4 from firmware 4.1 to 4.2. I tried the tinyumbrella exit recovery and it did not work. also, the phone was never jailbroken. I also tried computer shutdown, different USB ports and a couple things with restarting itunes and nothing worked. any other suggestions before i leave my house and try to restore on another computer?

  7. #27
    almost the same here: never jailbroken iphone 4 (so no gs.apple.com entry in hosts file) stuck in recovery mode, giving me the 1013 finger, everytime i try to recover. here's the odd: i ran 4.2 for a while before a push notification told me i wasn't able to make phonecalls any more and i needed to recover my device.

    went through ALL apple suggested solutions until i send the iphone to the service center. and there it worked perfectly (so they say). back home i put my backup back up and got exactly the same crap again. AND i tried 3 different computers to recover - mac & windows. nothing.

    now i have not tried it in a different network environment yet. my last hope is, that my modems firewall is ******** me. but i'm not really sure, since i got the crap after doing my backup. i certainly wont back it up again. apparently this is causing the error message.

    any suggestions or ideas, anyone?

    update: my modem doesn't have anything like a firewall. at least there's nothing thats declared anything close to it, except for child-protection-security-thing, which is deactivated all the way through. desperation grows fast and cold....

    Steffenator... U said u tried on other computers... Make sure u got it right!
    Go to a computer that NEVER had anything to do with jailbreaking, tinyumbrella, hosts (edited) etc.
    Download the correct 4.2.1 firmware (to that computer). Make sure u have the latest version of iTunes. Connect your iPhone and enter DFU mode.
    Then when iTunes recognizes it, Shift+Click (on Mac I think it's Command+Click, but not sure) and browse for the firmware file you downloaded, and custom restore your iPhone to (4.2.1).
    I think we were in the same situation and my situation was probably worst since it was jailbroken and I crashed it in the middle of a device settings-and-data reset. So if u do all of that I believe it should work for you...
    Good Luck

    Find the solution here:

    1. Go to your "Applications" folder

    4. Type "sudo nano /etc/hosts" (without quotes) and hit return

    I deleted the bottom one and added a # to the remaining one. This worked.

    I have a jb Iphone 4 4.1 and I tried to upgrade to 4.3.2 and received error 1013. I tried the following solution

    Step 1. Start –> Programs –> Accessories
    Step 2. Run Notepad or WordPad
    Step 3. Click “Open..” from File menu.
    Step 4. Browse to Windows/System32/drivers/etc
    Step 5. In "files of type:" select all documents
    Step 6. Open "hosts"
    Step 7. Delete all line that has "gs.apple.com" or something like that
    Step 8. delete hosts.umbrella
    Step 9. Hit Save
    Step10. Restore your device

    but when I hit "save" it says "cannot create c:WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file". I have tried tiny umbrella as well but stuck in recovery loop. Does anyone have any ideas to help me?

    Thanks in advance

    There is an option in tinyumbrella that automatically resets the shsh but I cannot recall what option it was
    That is how I fixed the 1013 error

    The option you are talking about is in advanced. Deselect the box that says set hosts to cydia on exit. Then close tiny umbrella and this will set your hosts file back to Apple instead of cydia.

    I saved the host file as host1 then dragged the original host file to my desk top...then restored and it worked

Oh, this is an iPhone 4 that has never been jailbroken for what its worth.

    anyone have an idea??
