    So i bought an iphone 3GS from craigslist today (been having really bad luck with iphones...) and it is stuck in recovery mode (the phone is in 10/10 condition it just will not get out of recovery mode) i have tried irecovery and DFU mode but it wont work.

    When i try to restore is gets to the very end, then reboots and says it failed due to error 1015.

    Please help! Thanks!!

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Try using Tiny Umbrella to get it out of recovery.

    I have fixed it!!! I don't know how but I did.

    So I plugged the iPhone into my computer and it was in recovery mode (not DFU) and I tried to restore it (windows 7 newest version of iTunes) and it failed at the very end.... Feeling angry I sat there for a bit and my iPhone rebooted but when it did the apple logo came up then all o a sudden a white bar was underneath it and it got to the end and boom my iPhone was working and out of recovery!
