Itunes restore Error -1

Itunes restore Error -1

Posted September 29, 2012 at 7:00pm by maheeinfy · 11253 views
My IPhone 4 is currently running 4.3.3 and Jailbroken. Since it was slow, i tried to restore to 4.3.3(i need Gevey unlock) using Itunes. Halfway through the restore process, itunes shows the error 'Phone cannot be restored due to error code -1'. Apple website describes Error code -1 as 'This may indicate a hardware issue with your device' Hardware issue???What the hell. My phone was working fine till this damn restore process that i tried..Now the phone wont even go back to old working mode. It just shows 'Itunes logo with USB cable'. Please help me

Ok i figured out.

Using redsnow recovery fix or some other similar tools didnt work. Phone kept reentering Recovery mode(Usb cable itunes logo screen)

What worked:
Using Ifaith, i dumped SHSH blobs, then used them to create custom 4.3.3 IPSW and then used this custom ipsw to restore in Itunes. Itunes restored with out any errors.

Now i was stuck on lock screen 'no sim inserted, insert valid sim for activation'. Using RedSn0w 0.9.6rc16, i hactivated and thats it...

Uffff..Some procedure this is..Why apple makes life difficult for us

just go in redsn0w > extras > Recovery fix put the iphone in dfu mode and the redsn0w will fix it for you :)
