    Back again this time I tried to upgrade my jailbroken 3gs from 4.1 to 4.3 on itunes and now I am stuck on the connect to itunes screen :confused:
    I can't even power off the phone and keep getting error 1015 when trying to restore.

    I have searched google but have always gotten the best walkthroughs on what to do here :) you guys are awsome.

    get the phone into DFU mode and try to restore again, if that failed, try different USB port, or different computer if possible (my development 3GS always get stuck there with my MB, i need to do its restore on the hackintosh, every time)

    Forgot to mentioned, make sure you got the lastest iTunes.

    You don't need to turn the phone OFF, just get it on DFU more (Follow the guide a Linked you, timing is critical), keep trying, you'll get it. on DFU mode the screen stay black but iTunes can still see it.

    You wont get the "power off slider" from recovery or DFU mode.

    Still no luck :( when I connect the phone to the computer it automatically turns back on with the connect to itunes screen so I hold down the power and home button until the screen goes black than I count to 10 release the power button and keep holding the home button.

    The problem is I am getting the message itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode right away when I try to restore I keep getting error 1015.

    I have the latest version of itunes and have tried a different computer with no luck :confused: I am desperate.

    i had the same problem with my iphone 4 on 4.1 when i upgraded to 4.2.1 a few weeks ago, I then had the same problem AGAIN a few days ago when i upgraded to 4.3.1..Each time it took about 3-4hrs to get my phone working again.

    I did this the first time and proved it worked a few times after that again..

    1. Restore with Tinyumbrellas servers running
    2. 1013 error confirms restore
    3. Phone gets stuck at Itunes screen
    4. Run Redsnow
    5. None of the options in TU work, kick out of recovery, fix recovery , ect..ect..
    6. Jailbreak with Greenpoison
    7. Then exit recovery mode(or was it fix recovery?) will work in TU and boot your phone!!


    EDIT #1, after dealing with 4.3.1 and reading 4.3.2 does nothing but fix battery life I am going back to 4.2.1 now. I will let you know how the above steps work for me, pretty sure i did not forget anything :)

    EDIT #2. Much less painless for some reason this time going form 4.3.1 to 4.2.1, Instead of running redsnow first i ran green poison to see if would actually work and it did! The steps i gave you the first time though should work as thats what i did originally
