    from this I am assuming Apple Mobile Device 6.1.0.13 indicates IOS 6.1?

    When connecting the phone to the USB, the phone automatically powers up and goes into recovery mode with no chance to start DFU Mode. I have tried holding the home button and plugging the phone in...no luck, I have tried every combination of buttons and connections and software but always stuck in recovery.

    3) I have tried tinyumbrella results in nothing happening except rebooting the phone and the phone goes back into recovery mode
    4) tried redsnow but the phone will not go into DFU Mode no matter which method out of about 3 methods of Power and home button combinations and time
    5) tried snowbreeze but the phone will not enter DFU mode
    6) all anti virus and firewall protection disabled and tried all of the above
    7) edited the hosts file and tried all of the above
    8) removed the battery and tried all of the above
    9) tried different USB port and all of the above
    10) tried different computer and all of the above
    11) tried different ispw files

    None of any of the above methods will get the phone out of the auto power up and recovery mode.

    Can some one help with a solution before I throw this phone on the floor and stomp on it...LOL....just kidding.

    Well, since you have done all that, the conclusion would be HW issue. (-1) is also known as a HW error. So, any service arround?

  3. #3
    Default update
    I new development today. It seems like I am able to enter DFU un-tethered but when I connect the phone, it reboots into recoverymode.

    I also checked the update logs. Not knowing exactly how to interpret them, it seems the restore process is indicating that there are some missing plist files and bbupdater problems. These are not all the questionable lines indicating errors but these are the ones I thought are most relevant to my problems.

    1) manifest dict
    2) bbfw item: world.fls
    3) bbfw item: options.plist
    4) devicemap.txt
    5) device_map.plist
    6) basehandlerupdaterstatus: command accepted: NO
    7) ramrod firmware update: failed
    8) ramrod error domain code: 1004
    9) CF Error bbupdater code: 2 null
    10) unrecognized key Bootrags
    11) bbupdater-ping failed
    12) kbbureturnbadchecksum(12/2) invalid bbupdater
    13) unable to convert ramrod error 1004

    I am not sure what this all means but it appears that the baseband is hosed for one thing or the updater is the wrong bbupdate

    How can I determine which baseband version is installed if I cannot get into the phone?

    It doesn't matter what bb you have, if the phone is sim free. The fact that it can not recognize the BB and iTunes error -1, well, sorry to say this, but it appears that the BB chip is gone.

    From the information that I have provided, what indicates it is the bb and what are my options?

    My guess is that the update doesn't recognize the bb, in order to update it and that is why you get that error -1. If I am right (hope not), than there are no options left. BB chip replacement is not possible.
