Dont try to update to iOS 6.0.1-iPhone 4s can only update to the latest iOS.I would advise to stay on 6.0 because you will lost your jailbreak.

If you will restore,you need iTunes 11.1 and you will go to iOS 7

I have it but I'm getting error 4014 with all firmwares. I even tried it restore with itunes 11.0 to ios 6.1.3 but I'm getting the same error.

You can't restore to 6.1.3 anymore.

Go to and tell me what you see

Although it is not documented error, and i cannot say for sure, but i suspect it is what you migh get if your itunes is not the latest which is must to handle ios7.

I'm really pissed.

(27 Sep '13, 12:27) Chitwinder Chitwinder's gravatar image

Again it is undocumented error, and since you are updating to unjailbroken 7.x it has nothong to do with jailbreak. However, rather being pissed, why wont you use google? Simple search reveals this

I didn't find any usefull... Thats why I am getting help from you all.

(27 Sep '13, 12:37) Chitwinder Chitwinder's gravatar image

and not only 7.0, I even tried 6.0.1 and 6.1.3 but no luck.

(27 Sep '13, 12:39) Chitwinder Chitwinder's gravatar image

For the last time you cant try to restore to any iOS 6,it wont work

(27 Sep '13, 14:19) King Shoot King%20Shoot's gravatar image

Okay, Then i will try to restore when there will be a update for ios 7.

(27 Sep '13, 15:01) Chitwinder Chitwinder's gravatar image
