I have iphone 4s on ios 6.0 and I am jailbroken.Today i was trying to update it to ios 7 through itunes.But always I get an error 4014 after the process of "preparing iphone for restore". I even tried it to restore to 6.0.1 but i got the same error. Can anyone help me out this.
your ONLY Option..
1 Check your Host file by going to gs.apple.com in you computers browser.
3 make sure your iTunes is up to date.
4 Enter DFU Mode
Do not use any jailbreak tools to enter DFU Mode ( that would be Pwned DFU ), all you should have open is iTunes and follow these steps.
EASY DFU: Plug device into computer via USB. Don't look at the device, concentrate on the counting. Hold home+power for 10 seconds, then release power but keep holding home for 12 more seconds. Screen should be black
5 open iTunes and just hit " restore iPhone "
Do NOT try and restore any 6.x IPSW's just hit " Restore iPhone " and let iTunes download the newest IPSW ( 7.0.2 ) ATM or it will fail..
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.
