Upgrading iPhone – the iphone could not be restored an unknown error occurred 1013

On seeing JailBreakMe has released a new version – which allows me to upgrade to the 4.3.3 firmware – I thought I’d update my iPhone4 – but annoyingly kept getting the following error message (whether doing an update or a full restore) :

“The iphone could not be restored an unknown error occurred 1013”

In my case, the fix was to edit /etc/hosts (OSX) and comment out / remove an entry for :

74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

I have a feeling this was put there by TinyUmbrella or something, but nevermind. It works now.
