    Unless you have your SHSH files stored, your only option is stock 4.0

    Your tried to go to 4.0? If you don't have your files stored, this is your only option.

    could be because i have spirit jailbreak and itunes 9.2?

    If you upgrade to iTunes 9.2 you need to use a modified spirit to run a fresh jailbreak. However, if you where previously JB using Spirit with iTunes 9.1 or such. This won't be the glitch. What exactly happened that lead up to you being stuck in recovery mode?

    i had to put it in recovery mode by plugging it in while holding the home button, to do the snowbreeze custom 4.0 firmware

    Now when i try to update to 4.0 i get an error 13

    Never mind i got it back to where it was with 3.1.3 by unpluging it while it was trying to restore

    You can use the new released Sn0wBreeze 1.6.2 to upgrade from Spirit'd device on 3.1.3!
