I was given the option to update to to thenew 6.1, and upon my phone resetting after the download I got the (-1) error and my phone was thrown into recovery mode.


I have tried to restore my phone 5 times and each time I keep getting the -1 error code.


Shutting it down with the home key / powe on off button does nothing but return me to the screen where my phone shows me the "plug me into iTunes" photo.


Anyone else wonder if this is apple's way of hitting people up for a $20.00 service fee right after their one year warranty is up?


Can someone help?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1
