I have an iPad 4 w/ 6.1.1 and was upgrading to 6.1.2 via restore on PC. It starts the update and fails a few seconds in and gives me a failure of -1 through iTunes. I even tried it on 2 seperate macs and it fails also. Does anyone have any ideas, I can't even do an official update. Does the update now look for the evasi0n hack and fails if it sees it? This is what it is looking like to me, I can't get it out of recovery now and it looks as if I am stuck now! Please give me ideas...

Same issue as you here! but with an iphone 4S. Error -1 through iTunes and now I can't restore. The official restore with DFU mode doesn't work for me.

Please, any help?
