Hi all


I tried updating to iOS 6.1 the other day and the iphone went into reveovery mode. Have tried to restore but am given the error code -1.

I have tried all the troubleshooting steps including putting the phone into DFU mode, updating itunes, disabling my anti virus, redownloading the ios IPSW and checking the windows hosts file. I have tried different USB ports on my PC, another PC and just tried on a mate's PC today still being given the -1 error.


Im not worried about losing data because i backed up right before trying to update the OS.


Have just got off the phone with Optus (my service provider in Australia) and they have offered to replace the iphone if i go into the shop tomorrow but wouldnt the iPhone 5 come with ios 6.0 as stock? The first thing i will do is try to update it to iOS 6.1 but am worried i will get the same -1 error code and then ill be back to where i am now.


Anyone else have this problem and been able to fix it or anything else i can try?



iPhone 4, iOS 6
