“Error 1013” on iPhone and device does not turn on

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


So guys, if you have any idea how to solve this error, please respond to me and any suggestion will be appreciated thankfully. My device is an iPhone 4.

So here's the log of what I have done:

1. First I go to C:WindowsSystem32driversetc, then Edit Host file and delete " gs.apple.com".

2. Start TinyUmbrella. I unchecked "Set host to Cydia on Exit" to be able to run "Prepare your iPhone to restore".

3. Then I switch on iTunes. My phone is already in DFU mode.

4. I run iREB-r4 to bypass error 1600.

5. But in the middle of restoration, I get "error 1013".

I can't turn on my device. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

“Error 1013” on iPhone and device does not turn on


In order to resolve Error 1013, do the following and since you're using Windows. We're going to use the Windows workaround:

Go to Accessories by going through Start and Programs.

Open Notepad. If you're using Windows 7, make sure you run Notepad as Administrator. To do this, just right-click on Notepad and Run as Administrator:

Run Notepad as Administrator

Open up the "hosts" file in notepad. You can look for this in the directory: Windows/System32/drivers/etc. and select file type as all files.

Delete any entry in the host file that has gs.apple.com. Save the file.

Since you've already unselected "Set host to Cydia on Exit" on TinyUmbrella, look for the option on your iPhone for "Exit Recovery". These options should be on your TinyUmbrella. Select it. This should enable your iPhone to continue restore.

Hope all that helps! Cheers!

“Error 1013” on iPhone and device does not turn on


In order to resolve error 1013 you'll have to do the following, for Mac:

1. Open Finder;

2. Press COMMAND + SHIFT keys and press G;

3. Type /private/etc/ in the field and then press GO;

4. Find hosts in the file directory and drag that file to the desktop;

5. Open it in any text editor;

6. Entirely remove the line that has gs.apple.com, or put # at the beginning of it to comment it out;

7. Save the file and drag it back to the /private/etc/folder. Maybe you'll need to enter your username and password to complete this transfer.

As for the Windows you'll have to do the following:

1. Locate the hosts file in one of the following directories:

  • Windows95/98/Me C:windowshosts;
  • Windows NT/2000/XP Pro C:winntsystem32driversetchosts;
  • Windows XP. Vista, 7 C:windowssystem32driversetchosts;

2. Right click on it and select Open With, and the click on the Notepad from the list;

3. Remove the line that has gs.apple.com completely and save the file. This should do the job but there is one big flaw to this.

You will lose all your music, photo books and videos in this process.

Anyway, you defiantly shouldn't be using TinyUmbrella to kick out of restore. This way you'll add the gs.apple.com line back into the host file, and you should be getting rid of it in order to fix this problem.

This way you'll just end back to error 1013 again.

Hope this'll help you.

Roll back to previous ios version. You have not specified the Ios installed currently on your iPhone 4.

Downgrade t ios 4.1 and then remove the links from the host file again.

Try using a different computer that has no prior iPhone or apple device connected to it.

Do the whole steps again on that computer because there are few things that will be changed in the new computer.

Use the Tinyumberella to move out from the recovery mode. This is the only possible solution for this.

If you are still unable to do it then contact the apple technical support on this.

If you are using windows 7, run all the programs in the Administrator mode. Even the host file must be edited as an administrator to make the changes permanent.
