How to Fix that nasty Error 1013

Yes, all of the above is true but many users are reporting error 1013 when they try to update.

I did not have these steps to follow at the time when I had this error, I simply kept trying to restore and it finally randomly worked.

If my method does not work for you please follow the method below.

On Mac OS X-

1. Click on the Spotlight search on the top right corner of your screen

2. Search for Terminal and Launch it

3. Type the following and hit enter: sudo nano /etc/hosts  

4. With the down arrow key find the “gs.apple.com” entries. Place the cursor infront and comment out the line(s) by typing the number symbol like this “#”

4. Save the results by pressing Ctrl + O on your keyboard

5. Exit the editor by pressing Ctr + X on your keyboard

6. Now try restoring your iDevice

On Windows -

1. Go to Start -Programs -Accesories

2. Run Notepad or Wordpad

3. From the File menu click open

4. Navigate to Windows/System32/Drivers/etc

5. If the hosts file doesnt show up, look at file types and click select all

6. the hosts file should now be shown so open it

7. Erase all of the gs.apple.com or anything similar to it

8. Try restoring your iDevice
