    Was having issues on my 3g ipad2 after using jailbreakme (needed to reboot at least twice a day due to some apps randomly stop working properly), so I figured I would just restore my device. Turns out every time I try to restore I get error 1013 "Cannot resotre....." in iTunes. Did I screw myself and have to wait until 4.3.4 comes out? Thanks

    Hi try this procedure.

    For Mac OS X:
    Step 1. Go to your “Applications” folder
    Step 2. Go to your “Utilities” folder
    Step 3. Launch “Terminal”
    Step 4. Type “sudo nano /etc/hosts” (without quotes) and hit return
    Step 5. Enter your password
    Step 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 or remove the line that has gs.apple.com entirely
    Step 7. Save the file by pressing CONTROL+O on the keyboard
    Step 8. Exit the nano editor by pressing CONTROL+X on the keyboard
    Step 9. Restore your iDevice

    For Windows
    Step 1. Start –> Programs –> Accessories
    Step 2. Run Notepad or WordPad
    Step 3. Click “Open..” from File menu.
    Step 4. Browse to Windows/System32/drivers/etc
    Step 5. In “files of type:” select all documents
    Step 6. Open “hosts”
    Step 7. Delete all line that has “gs.apple.com”
    Step 8. Hit Save
    Step 9. Restore your device

    Other think is make sure you antivirus and firewall ( if you have any of this) are disable and try again. I had a similar problem updating my wife's iPhone 4
