    Have you tried doing a restore in DFU mode, and then upgrading?

    Thanks to ashtech

    DFU mode is the way to go and check that your hosts file doesmt contain any apple entries. You could always use a clean hosts file to be sure then swap it back after. Sometimes different cables and USB ports help but DFU sorts most if these errors. Also use latest iTunes.

    Worked a treat, it was the hosts file, anyone else wanting to do this and getting error's, heres how to edit the hosts file.

    Close iTunes
    Start –> Programs –> Accessories
    Run Notepad or WordPad (as administrator on windows 7)
    Click “Open..” from File menu.
    Browse to Windows/System32/drivers/etc
    In "files of type:" select all documents
    Open "hosts"
    Either delete all line that has "gs.apple.com", or add a "#" sign at the beginning of the line to comment it out
    Hit Save
    Reboot computer for changes to take effect.
    Visit [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to verify that the hosts file is pointing to Apple and not Cydia.
    Restore your device.
