If you're running Windows 7/VISTA, right click the 1015 error fix file and click "Run as Administrator". Oh and is the error you're getting saying something like "iTunes failed to complete the activation"?

Didn't mean to delete all your threads... sorry. If you updated your iPad 3G to 4.3 beta without a Dev account then you're stuck with a brick until Tiny Umbrella is updated to kick you out of recovery mode. The reason you get 1015 is because your baseband was updated and now you're trying to get back down to 4.2.1 and it no longer matches back up.

Ok, heres how to activate 4.3 without a dev account, OR jail breaking. *note, you must have blobs saved from 3.x.x firmware.
1st. Download the 3.2.x firmware, tiny umbrella, and have your ssh's saved.
2nd. Run tinyumbrella server,
3rd. Put your iPad into dfu, then when iTunes recognizes it, hold shift, and click restore, then select the 3.2.x firmware.
4. Wait for it to restore.
5. When it's done. iTunes should kick up a 1015 error, kick it out using to tiny umbrella
6. Stop tiny umbrella, restart iTunes, and with iPad on and plugged in, shift click the UPDATE button, NOT restore!
7. Choose the 4.3 firmware, let it restore.
8. tada, should now have an activated iPad, running 4.3, works up to beta 3, which I'm currently running.
Ya, if you do it right, it should work.
