Thread: Unlocked 3g bricked after removing sim

  1. #1
    Default Unlocked 3g bricked after removing sim
    So I bought a phone off craiglist, and the girl told me it just got stuck on the apple logo after taking her t mobile sim card out. She refused to admit she tried resetting it from the phone, even though thats still what I think she did.

    Stuck on boot logo, error 1015.

    Cant figure out what the firmware is, and really stuck where to go next. Any ideas?

    Use iReb or Fix Recovery to kick it out of the stuck boot logo. If that doesn't work then just dfu your device and restore it.

    It being unlocked has nothing to do with the error. The 1015 is a recovery error from iTunes. It basically keeps it in a recovery loop.

    Try using TU or RecBoot to kick it out of recovery. RecBoot has always worked for me.

    Absolutely no reason why this cant be DFU restored......... as stated above, locked unlocked..... doesn't make any difference to a DFU restore!!!!

    I think he's trying to avoid doing a restore so he can see what firmware and baseband version he has.

    I agree though, a dfu restore would do the trick

    bwyand92 ... Do you care about the current firmware version or contents, or do you just want it to work??

    If the latter, update to 4.2.1. It's being signed today and it's fully jb'able and untethered. Use PwnageTool or Sn0wbreeze, create a custom firmware, enter pwnd-DFU (w/Sn0w...), shift/click/select cfw w/iTunes. Done. Then install Ultrasn0w via Cydia for an unlock (if needed).

    The Op cannot restore to custom firmware of 4.3.3 as his iphone is a 3g.
    If you want 4.2.1, Download Snowbreeze 2.2.1 and stock 4.2.1 fw.
    Create a custom fw of 4.2.1, put iphone into pwned dfu mode and restore to it.
    You can use Redsn0w RC8 , browse to stock 4.2.1 to put iphone into dfu mode.
    OR
    Put your iphone into normal dfu or even recovery mode.
    Restore to stock 3.1.3
    Use Exit recovery to kick out error 1015
    Jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.4 but browse to stock 3.1.2

    Thanks iYeow .. .I missed that. Change it to 4.2.1 and it works the same. Although 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 are better
