How To Fix Error 1013 on iOS 4.2 Upgrade
By on November 23rd, 2010

In the past we have given you instructions on how to fix 3194/1014 errors with your or devices. As with major software upgrades with iOS, there are bound to problems for few people. One of the most annoying one’s with iOS 4.2 is the “No Content” in iPod music which can be easily fixed.

Another problem being faced by users and also being actively discussed in the Apple forums is the 1013 error which occurs after upgrading to iOS 4.2. However, thanks to a member, Dave, there is a fix for this problem.

Here is a step-by-step instruction to fix the iOS 4.2 1013 error after the upgrade:

  1. Go to your “Applications” folder
  2. Go to your “Utilities” folder
  3. Launch “Terminal”
  4. Type “sudo nano /etc/hosts” (without quotes) and hit return
  5. Enter your password
  6. Use the down arrow key to find the “gs.apple.com” entries. Once the cursor is in front, make sure you comment out the line(s) by entering “#” (no quotes) in front of the text
  7. Save the file by pressing CONTROL+O on the keyboard
  8. Exit the nano editor by pressing CONTROL+X on the keyboard
  9. Restore your iDevice

For users with Windows PC, you will have to follow change the hosts file in %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\. You might want to visit our earlier post on downgrading iPhone which has an active discussion and instructions on making this change.

    The entry in the hosts file is added by Tiny Umbrella, a program people use to backup their SHSH’s for jailbreaking. Normal users are not affected.
