    I bought an iPhone 3G off eBay and it's stuck in Recovery. When I try to restore, it gives me error 1015. I have no idea what firmware it has or anything. I use a Mac with Snow Leopard. What can I do?

    Thanks.

    1. I deleted the lines
    2. put the iPhone in pwned DFU mode
    3. relaunched iTunes and tried to restore.
    4. After 5 minutes, iTunes got stuck on Restoring iPhone Firmware and crashed with error 1015
