    Okay, so I bought an iPhone 3G today from someone who just got an iPhone 4. I used Redsn0w to jailbreak it and install the iPad 3.2.2 baseband so I could unlock it. After it installed the iPad baseband, the iPhone 3G restarted and the Apple logo came up, but then the whole screen dimmed and seemed to freeze.

    I've managed to restart it in DFU mode, and am trying to restore it using the IPSW file created by redsn0w, but just before the restore is complete, iTunes gives me a warning that it could not complete the restore and I need to try again. I'm trying again now, but I think the same thing is going to happen.

    Did I just brick my phone?

    UPDATE: Yep. Same thing happened again. I get this error message: "The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1015)." The "More Info" button takes me to this page: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1275

    You did not brick your phone.

    Redsn0w is jailbreak tool and not tool that use to create file.

    what error message did you get from Itune?

    As per dev team, once you have ipad baseband installed, you can not restore to Apple official firmware. You can only restore to customs firmware only.

    Right now I seem to be stuck in some iPhone restore loop. I keep getting error 1015 and it tells me to connect my iPhone back to iTunes each time. When I run the restore again (from a custom IPSW file built through PwnageTool, I get the same error.

    How do I get out of this restore loop?

    (thanks for your reply)

    Download tiny umbrella to your PC. Once Itunes gives you the 1015 error, open tiny umbrella and hit "exit recovery".

    You should be good to go.

    You have to put the phone in pwned dfu mode first with redsnow and then restore to the custom ipsw thru iTunes.

    I've tried TinyUnbrella and also booting into DFU through iTunes, and still it's just stuck in this infinite 1015 restore loop.

    If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd really appreciate it. I spent a lot of money I don;t really have on this damn iPhone...

    Thanks
