    Default "iPhone Cannot be Restored" Message While Trying to Update Updating?

    So. I am a little worried. I need my phone obviously. Anyway. I was attempting to update today and I got the 1013 error. Now my iPhone 4 has never been jailbroken or anything besides pure from Apple. I had issues with my jailbroken 3GS and decided I didn't need a jailbreak. Anyway. I am stuck and it will not restore no matter what I try. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Download firmware and try putting the phone in recovery mode, then using shift+restore method to restore fresh.

    I had the same problem. I had to put it inDFU mode. I had the beta version so I figured that was the reason. Plus there were like millions of people updating all at once at 1pm when I updated.

    Happened to me as well gave me a fit for well over 2 hours. I finally used a different computer just for the software load and it worked like a charm. Then I restored from my laptop.

    As much as this sounds crazy I got that during the last update, i was using a non-apple USB cable, actually had a lot of syncing problems with it. Since switching it out syncing and updates have been fine.

    I got mine to work on another computer but I'm wondering why it wouldn't work on my normal machine?!
