    Error 1015 if I'm not mistaken is baseband/software mismatch. Have you tried using a different computer? Different USB ports? Rebooting your computer?

    Same Problem

    I had the same problem. I wished I had bought apple care on it. After hours and hours of trying to fix it and a call to Apple it is now and forever will be a brick. I will monitor to see if you actually get a helpful post it might help me too, this one is more of I feel your pain post.

    1015 - This error message occurs when you downgrade or upgrade to a different baseband than the firmware your restoring to has. This message does NOT mean the restore failed - it simply means the phone firmware does not match the baseband. Use iLiberty/Independence to kick the phone into normal mode and out of recovery mode and it will work.


    However, those tools have long been outdated.

    Dont bother with ziphone.
    Try irecovery to see if it gets it out.

    If its stuck on the white screen sounds like a hardware issue.
