Of course,this mesage appears in that "console like" screen that appears when we do a Jailbreak in the device

Can you try with a different cable/usb port on the computer?

If you are running windows vista, windows 7 or windows 8 even, you are right clicking on redsn0w and selecting "Run as administrator" to let it work properly right?

Of course

I'm out of ideas here then, I read it is a hardware error with the baseband chip for the -1 error, but that doesn't explain the Redsn0w error :(  Do you have any sort of antivirus that could be messing with it?  Or possibly have skype open?  (I know that tinyumbrella has issues with skype, bt that shouldn't be redsn0w).

Hopefully someone else with experience with this error can chime in about now ;)

i already encountered that error in itunes (error -1) during the installation of WD6 ..

this is what i do . .

i downloaded snowbreeze
then , i "custom-firmwared" the ios 3.1.3 original firmware using snowbreeze ..
then restore in itunes using the customed-firmware 3.1.3 ..

then , it finishes fine ..

then i lastly installed WD6 unlocked ..

hope it helps . :)

or you could try using the "tiny umbrella" app ..

use it to kick out your iphone out of recovery mode
