Tpo get the solution you need to edits that file and comments that line to avoid problems.
  • Open Terminal and Type the following: sudo nano / etc / hosts
  • We asked the administrator password Key and press enter - it is normal not to be displayed on screen (made on purpose for security reasons). This will open the text editor with administrative user, and permissions to modify the hosts file, which is causing this problem.
  • Using the arrow keys, scroll down to the line where it says gs.apple.com and put the cursor right in the first place.
  • Press Ctrl + O (not zero, but an O) and Nano will ask if you want to save / etc / hosts - Press Enter and return to editor. Then press Ctrl + X to exit it.
  • Close Terminal, go to iTunes and click on the restore button again. Now, you should not give the error 1013 and the iPhone should be restored - iTunes asks if we want to copy everything we had before the iPhone - we chose the name from the list and give the green light. In a few hours have restored the iPhone as new.

This is a way to keep iTunes launch a 1013 when trying to get version 4.2.1. This error occurs because the HOSTS file from our pc / mac is modified and Apple has put a new security in the baseband that throws the error 1013. Using this tutorial again leaves the HOSTS file as source and we can try again to get the 4.2.1 without errors. For doing this you need to follow the process:
  1. Open and go to the advanced tab.
  2. tab disable "Set Host to Cydia on".
  3. Click on Apply Changes, and close tiny umbrella.

If you are using windows then I think you need these points which might be helpful to you. For the solution you need to go to the programs and then proceed to the accessories and run Notepad or another plain text editor after this Click on Open from the File menu and Navigate to Windows/System32/drivers / etc. After this in the Files of type 'show all documents
Open "hosts" file and delete any line that has "gs.apple.com " as you have done all the above things just start the computer and share your iPhone back to iTunes.
