How to fix some mysterious problems.

HI, I have an iphone with unknown history.Was working fine on 5.1.1 + jailbreak.I want to sell it so I tried to make a clean restore on itunes. The process was going well but almost at the end it gave the (-1)error. Now the iphone is stuck in recovery mode and I don't know what to do with it. I've tried the following: -retried official itunes restore on windows, mac -changed the motherboard on another iphone that was 100% working, still error -1 -there are 5.1.1 SHSH saved so I stitched the blobs to the ipsw and tried itunes in pwned DFU, still with other errors. -I tried restoring with redsnow to the 5.1.1 and still nothing. I can't get out from recovery mode as redsnow does not support 6.1 and tinyumbrella has no effect. Maybe someone can give me some new ideas or know why this happened. THanks

Try downloading the 6.1 file hit shift key and mouse on iTunes and that should take you out of the restore mode.

thanks for a very "wise" advise.I still haven't resolved my problem.

Still no progress in my case. I read somewhere that it has to do with the thing that it was jailbreaked , like apple when doing an official restore checks the phone and determines that something is wrong and gives this error. The problem is that I can't get out of recovery mode. Redsnow doesn't support 6.1 and the last tinyumbrella has no effect. I can not believe that it is a harware problem as it was working fine before the update.

Is it stuck on the apple logo or connect it to iTunes logo?

I had the same problem. I used different computer which fixed the problem. I read somwhere that when software is corrupted that problem occurs. Try downloading new iOS 6.1 using wired internet connection(not wifi) and disable your anti virus and firewall and try to restore again. That should solve your problem.

I know the feeling because I had the same problem not even the apple store could fix it until I downloaded the 6.1 file and hit the shift key and restore button on iTunes which did the job for me.
