    Hi...
    i have posted last night about my iPhone 3g 16GB being "bricked"


    actually it turns out it is stuck in recovery loop?


    i have tried restoring with iTunes but it gives me an 1015 Error


    this phone was jailbroken,


    reason it got into this state is because i forgot passcode and entered it 10 times incorrectly

    resulted in erasing all device data (which i call now an iBrick)

    for the past 12 hours i have been searching forums but no success

    i have tried using the tiny umbrella thing

    and redsnow but it fails

    please help me.... merry christmas

    Only option is to try a DFU mode restore and keep trying. It’s never a good idea to erase all a JB phone.

    i just sold my Macbook yesterday... seriously FML

    so i am under the impression that my device is stuck in recovery mode!?
    ti is stuck on the iTunes and USB logo's
    i have tried all available software to kick it out of recovery mode
    such as

    tinyumbrella
    iReb
    (quickpwn does not want to start on my PC... it crashes on startup..:( )
    iBrickr
    RecBoot
    reDsnow is for 3Gs


    after all that my iPhone is still an iBrick

    i have tried recover with iTunes but after the restore it stil gives 1015 error

    ....

    Put it in DFU mode and restore with Itunes. It will restore your phone to 4.2.1 firmware.

    If your getting the 1015 error when restoring the iPhone make sure that you don't have 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com line in your host file or make sure you had unchecked the Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit in the advanced tab after you quit TinyUmbrella.
