    I upgraded my 4.1 iPhone 3GS to 4.3.2 and then used redsn0w 0.9.6rc14 to unlock it (upgrading BB to 06.15). I thought process went smoothly after following the detailed instructions. Now the iPhone has the connect to iTunes logo and will not do anything else. I tried a hard reboot (holding down power and home buttons) which didn't help. Tried to Option-Restore (several times) where towards the end of the process, I get a 1015 error.

    What else can I do just to get this phone back to working order?

    Have you used an application called tinyumbrella? If so this program makes an entry in your /etc/hosts files redirecting the apple servers which help complete the upgrade. I am not sure if any other apps also make this change to the hosts file.

    I have written a small script that will do this for you. If you want it let me know and I will post the link.

    If you want to do it manually look for a line like this in your /etc/hosts file:

    and either remove it or put a # sign infront of it.

    Here is the link about the 1015 error.

    I haven't used tinyumbrella before. If you meant /etc/hosts on the iPhone itself, I couldn't access that since the phone is inoperable at the moment (with connect to iTunes logo on screen).

    I would appreciate it if you could provide me with more details as to how else I could mod the /etc/hosts file.

    Apologies, I meant the /etc/hosts file on your mac.

    To check to see if the line I posted above is present in your hosts file, open up the terminal application (found in your utilities folder), and enter the following command:

    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    This will then display the contents of your hosts file. Have a look to see if you can spot anything related to gs.apple.com.

    Appreciate it.

    Thanks again. Just realized you had it laid out in your reply. Will give it a try when I get home this aft. I decided not to bring my MBP to work today.
