    Well my friend I have used the TinyUmbrella to boot out my device out of recovery mode, and I was having the 4.2.1, but I notice a few glitches. Although captivating pictures, I have notice so as to part of the picture was misplaced from the top. I imagine that the setting up gets degraded. I have to go reverse to the 4.1, correct my Host file, to delete all the"gs.apple.com" lines and modernize to 4.2.1 with no 1013 error. So you can try the same and also you can get it done fixed and also you will be able to work on it.

    I would suggest you to download the TinyUmbrella application on your computer, then click the phone which is been attached to the computer and click on the leave recovery mode, as it will work. I just did the same for my iPhone 4

    I was also having the same problem which you are having it right now but I have solved it doing the following method:
    For Mac Computer:
    • Open Finder
    • Hold down COMMAND + SHIFT keys and press 'G'
    • Enter "/private/etc/" in the field and press "Go"
    • Find "hosts" file in the directory
    • Drag the file to your desktop
    • Open it in text editor
    • Remove the line that has gs.apple.com entirely or put a # at the beginning of it to comment it out
    • Save the file
    • Drag it back to the /private/etc/ folder.
    • You'd need to enter your username and password to authenticate the move

    For Windows Computer:
    • Locate the hosts file in one of the following directories:
    • For the Windows 95/98/Me ‘c:\windows\hosts’
    • For the Windows NT/2000/XP Pro ‘c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts’
    • For the Windows XP, Vista, 7 ‘c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts’
    • Right click and click on "Open With" and then click on "Notepad" on the list.
    • Remove the line that has gs.apple.com completely and save the file.

    This will work fine except you will lose all music, photos, videos and books which were there on the phone, so you can try it and get it done for you.

    I will suggest you that do not use the TinyUmbrella application to boot out of restore. Using it will add the gs.apple.com line back onto Host file and you will get back to error 1013, and also can't update the firmware.
