    Default Stuck in recovery error 1015 - no way to turn off phone
    3G stuck in recovery can not enter DFu as there is no option to slide to power off anymore.

    Trying to restore 4.2.1; phone was on 4.2.1. with the ipad bb. It is my wifes phone - now will be my phone as my 3GS was stolen. I wanted to restore my 3GS back up to her old 3G, but didnt see a way to select my backup from the drop down list in itunes, only her old backups.

    So i tried to restore to the 4.2.1, and now its is locked in recovery mode. But there is no option to slide to power off when holding the power button, therefore I can not get into DFU. Thanks.

    I am in china, can not access tinyumbrella website it is block... any other place to download it?

    Is this 3gs or 3g ? If it is a 3gs then u need shsh blob , if 3g u dont need it. You need to create a custom fw of 4.2.1 from snowbreeze 2.2.1, put iphone into pwned dfu mode by using redsnow rc8 and restore to cfw of 4.2.1

    You can also restore to stock 4.1 , error 1015 pops up, exit recovery from TU. Jailbreak with redsnow b6

    SB 2.0.2 is not for 4.2.1

    I cant DL TU here do to the fire wall of china, all of the sites I found for it are blocked. I do have fixrecovery421.exe, and fixrecovery43.exe, but could get the phone into DFU, there is no option to slide to power off, it just stays in standard recovery mode.

    Is there any other Dl site or is TU hosted somewhere?

    I gotta go to work in a few minutes!!! are you still there man? Need your expertise.

    China blocks most of these websites, the folllowing is for you to restore your 3G iPhone to cfw of 4.2.1 bypassing error 1015
    I will upload it and give you the link

    Snowbreeze 2.2.1 download from here
    Tiny Umbrella version 5.00.09 from here
    Redsn0w RC8 from here

    Build your custom firmware of 4.2.1 from SB 2.2.1, use expert mode and check activate my iphone.
    You need to browse to stock 4.2.1 firmware , you can download yourself.
    You don't need tiny umbrella as apple signs 4.2.1, make sure your hosts is pointing towards apple server. You can do this
    from TU, advance tab : deselect / uncheck : set hosts file towards cydia, save and close TU.
    Use Redsn0w in xp2 compatibility mode , browse to stock 4.1 or 4.2.1 depending what IOS is now on your iphone, check only the last option : Set iphone into pwned dfu mode only.
    Once your iphone is in dfu mode, a message in Redsn0w will say dfu done.
    Run itunes : shift + restore to Snowbreeze_4.2.1.ipsw already placed on your desktop.
    When successfully restored, you should be at HomeScreen, update Cydia and install Ultrasn0w to unlock your ipad bb.

    Thanks so much for helping, but alas, the megaupload is blocked. Can you, if possible, try to add the files to file den? FileDen.com | Free file hosting and online storage I can access their site. Your instructions are very clear and I think I can manage it if I have those files!

    Thanks I got a trial vpn account and was able to access your files at megaupload ;-) I have been able to restore the SB custom 4.2.1 fw from itunes. but now I see that the back up I was initially trying to sync the 3G phone with can't be done because my 3GS (that was stolen) was already on fw 4.3 and now am restoring the phone as a new device.

    Still need to unlock with Ultrasn0w. Anyway to get the backup from the 3GS on 4.3 to restore the 4.2.1 3G? I need my contacts.

    Thanks a lot for all of your help already...

    (P.S. No need to upload any files to Fileden!)

    U can't restore a 4.3.x backup on 4.2.1
    Higher firmware backups can't be restored to lower firmwares.
