    Hello,

    I'm a noob here and I want a little advice. I asked everyone who I have known about this and and have tried every single phrases type to google with ZERO result.

    I have iPhone 3G bring from USA and now I am in Europe and the iPhone is not working of course.

    I procesed this procedure to unlock the iPhone.

    1. I downloaded RedSnow and correct iPhone ISPW
    2. I opened RedSnow and jailbroke the iPhone with iPad baseband
    3. I tried for Restore in iTunes BUT it stucks with 1015 error

    Now this iPhone 3G is useless because the only thing what it displays is black screen or recovery screen with iTunes icon.

    Guys PLEASE can you give me advice how to restore it to Default condition??

    You can never restore with stock firmware from itunes an iphone that has the ipad bb installed.
    You need to create a custom 4.2.1 ipsw using redsnow. Put your iphone in Pwned DFU mode and restore by selecting that custom ipsw.
    Then you can use redsnow again to downgrade the baseband to an unlockable version and install ultrasnow from cydia to unlock.
    Its not an easy process and it has many steps.
    Make sure you research a lot and understand what you're doing on each step.

    ouch

    you know have a expensive paperweight, unless you can learn to physically remove the internal flash storage and or adjust the base band yourself,(very difficult but not impossible.) paperweights have lots of functions , they can keep our paperwork from flying out the window, and or be used as a projectile to harmful intruders, my honest recommendation is get phone insurance wait a month to kick in, then make a claim.

    So much for being a "honest" recommendation.

    Why are commenting when you have no idea what it has or how it can be fixed?
    Its not a paper weight, its all software related and nothing hardware like flash storage or other things you said.
    It can be revived and unlocked, you just gotta follow directions and research on how to do it. Its not hardware related, the ipad bb can be reflashed and downgraded on an iphone 3G.

    It can.
    Its used for unlocking purposes on the iphone 3G and 3GS.
    Read more on it, its been used for years now.
