[How To] Fix 1015 error after updating to iPad baseband and trying to restore
If you have updated your baseband to the iPad one to unlock and find yourself having to restore then this is how you do it.
Follow the number for your situation
1: iPhone 3G with 4.1 SHSH
2: iPhone 3G with no 4.1 SHSH
3: iPhone 3GS with 4.1 SHSH
4: iPhone 3GS with no 4.1 SHSH
5: iPhone 3G with SHSH
6: iPhone 3GS no SHSH on 4.2.1
7: Any iPhone on 4.2.1
1: a)Download the 4.1 firmware for your device.
b)Open tiny umbrella and start TSS server
c)Shift-click restore to 4.1
d)When you get 1015 error use tiny umbrella or recboot to exit recovery
e)Do what you need to do to jailbreak or activate depending on if you have a official sim to activate or not.
2: Option 1: If you have a Mac make a custom 4.2.1 firmware and shift click restore to that (you do not need to add the iPad baseband if you have already done this).
Option 2: Download 3.1.3 firmware and shift-click restore to that in itunes. 3.1.3 does not require SHSH for iPhone 3G. You will het 1015 error, use tiny umbrella to exit recovery.
3: Same as #1
4: You have to use a custom 4.2.1 made with pwnage tool or snowbreeze.
a)If you have a Mac go to the iphone dev team blog and download pwnage tool 4.2 and make a custom 4.2.1 firmware to restore to: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=13931
b) If you dont have a Mac then you can make a custom firmware with snowbreeze 2.2: http://www.funkyspacemonkey.com/sn0w...-ios-421-video
5: With a iPhone 3G you can restore back 4.1. Once there you can jailbreak or activate with a official carrier sim, doesnt matter as long as you get past the emergency call screen. Go into itunes and update (do not restore, it has to be update) back to 4.2.1. You will still get a error 1015 but will be able to exit recovery if done using this method.
6: Restore to a regular 4.2.1 firmware. When you get the 1015 error use greenpoison to jailbreak:
7: Use the newest version of tiny umbrella. It has a "fix recovery" button now for getting out of recovery after error 1015 when restoring to 4.2.1.
Rules to follow:
1. Always use a official sim to activate after a restore if you have one as you will have less issues doing this (hacktivation can cause battery drain). If you dont have one you can use redsn0w to hacktivate.
2. If you already have the iPad baseband then make the custom firmware without the baseband update.
3. When restoring to custom firmware you need to put the phone into pwned dfu mode with redsnow or pwnage tool. Without doing this step you will get a error 16XX or 21.
4. Never use the "erase all media and settings button" in settings. It will leave you in boot loop meaning you will have to restore.
5. Always use regular firmware when using redsnow, not custom
6. Make sure you are choosing the right option when redsnow asks if you are new model (new bootrom). A tool called idetector can be used to find out what bootrom you have.
Steps for restoring to custom firmware:
1: Run redsnow 0.9.6rc8 (if on windows vista/7 then run in windows xp sp2 compatibility mode).
2: Browse for regular 4.2.1 firmware
3: If 3GS answer the question if you have new model 3GS or not (you can find out with idetector)
4: Press next
5: Just choose the option to enter pwned dfu
6: Follow steps to enter pwned dfu (should have a black screen when done)
7: Open itunes and shift restore to the custom firmware.

Anybody needing Custom Firmware and dont have access to a Mac just google for one or use snowbreeze. Do not post in the thread asking for one, your post will be deleted. You can post in the thread for help with making or using one if you want.
More methods will be added as they become available

Yes, i did that..as administrator..it says connecting to servers to retrieve the 4.2.1 firmware, under log. I am stuck in the connect to itunes screen it wont do anything else. I had it working fine but i messed up by using my last back ip in itunes that made it mess up so i am trying to restore it back to 4.2.1, it has the 6.15 bb no matter what its still stuck with the connect to itunes screen. I know that tinyumbrella supports 3g amd the 4.2.1 firmware, but just isnt working for me. I got the 1500 error and another one 1600 or something like that..any ideas?A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life~ Charles Darwin

Ok this is sooooo getting frustrating. I followed what the Dev team says...
My friend has a 3GS. When he gave it to me, it was on 3.1.3 with modem firmware 5.12.02. I made a custom firmware using Pwnage tool on my iMac. I used the latest one which is the 4.2 custom FW. I went to iTunes and click option + restore and selected my custom FW. It went through its process and it was stuck on recovery mode. So I went and use Redsn0w to jailbreak using the custom FW i created from Pwnage. It went through its process and it was stucked on the pineapple logo. I tried to do it again but with the same outcome. Arrrgh!
So I tried it on my PC... I went and restored it to the official 4.2 FW through iTunes. (The hell with unlock, I just want to get his phone off the recovery mode again). I get the 1015 error after I restored it and now the phone is stucked on "Connect to iTunes logo". So I tried using redsn0w on my PC to jailbreak. it went through its process and is stucked on the pineapple logo. So I used Redsn0w again and clicked on the "Use tethered booth only"(something like that). It went through its process and now its back to "Connect to iTunes" logo.
What am I doing wrong? This is soooo frustrating! The only thing I could think of that was mentioned here is that I don't have any sim card in his iPhone. Is that critical? I can borrow his Att sim and put it in and try running Redsn0w to jailbreak one more time...
