    1015 is good. Just means the fw was restored to properly but the baseband wasn't downgraded correctly. Just kick it out of recovery mode with Recboot. Then proceed to jb as normal.

    Edit: do a restore again to 3.1.2 and when you get error 1015, use Recboot. Then you can proceed to use Redsn0w to jb again.

    Did you jailbreak your 3.1.2 with Redsn0w 0.9.4 ?

    You will not be able to jailbreak your iPhone 3G on firmware 3.1.2 BB 05.11.07 with Redsn0w version 0.9.4. Redsn0w v0.9.4 was designed to jailbreak firmware 3.1.3 on baseband 05.12.01.

    • Redsn0w version 0.72 & 0.80 - will jailbreak firmware 3.0
    • Redsn0w version 0.92 - will jailbreak firmware 3.1.2
    • Redsn0w version 0.93 - will jailbreak firmware 3.1.2 w/internet tethering enabled
    • Redsn0w version 0.94 - will jailbreak firmware 3.1.3

    You will need to use Redsn0w v0.9.2 to jailbreak your iPhone 3G on firmware 3.1.2 with BB 05.11.07. I would recommend starting over and restore firmware 3.1.2 and then jailbreak using Redsn0w v0.9.2.

    If for some strange reason Redsn0w still fails, try using GeoHot's Blackra1n. It was also designed to jailbreak firmware 3.1.2. This will get you back to firmware 3.1.2.

    If you are trying to get to 4.0 or 4.0.1 jailbroken on your iPhone 3G, then you have two paths.

    1) Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5
    Restore firmware 4.0 and jailbreak using Redsn0w version 0.9.5b5-5. I recommend that you disable both multitasking and home wallpapers as they cause major performance issues on the 3G.

    2) Jailbreakme method
    Restore firmware 4.0. You will need to activate your iPhone 3G for this method in iTunes. Comex's jailbreakme method does not hacktivate your iPhone 3G so you will need a legitimate SIM card to activate. If you live in the USA, then use or borrow any AT&T SIM to activate your 3G. Once activated, then launch Safari on your 3G and enter JailbreakMe.com and then slide the button that says Jailbreak Me.

    Redsn0w 0.9.4 can jb 3.1.2 just fine. Did it on 2 iPhones last week. It's meant for 3.1.3, but it does the job just fine on 3.1.2.

    Create a custom 4.1 fw with Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 then shift+restore to the custom fw.

    You will then be on 4.1 jb.
