secondhand iPhone 3G won't factory restore from itunes

Hi, I bought a second hand Iphone 3g and when i pluged it in to my computer to do a factory restore it came up with error code, 1015. I've tried to follow steps on the apple website but cannot get the iphone restore and now it wont turn on past a screen showing a usb with an arrow pointing to an itunes symbol. Does anyone know whats wrong or how I could fix it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

tomoates , this is typically caused by attempts to downgrade the iPhone software. This can occur when you attempt to restore using an older .ipsw file. Downgrading to a previous version is not supported. Would you know if this phone was previously jailbroken?


I've asked the guy who i bought it off and he said it was jailbroken and that it is on the ipad bassband. do you know what i can do to get it working? Thanks for the help!

Down load TinyUmbrella, install it, then use it to Exit Recovery.

If you decide you want to fix this iPhone back to normal, with iPhone baseband and working GPS, go to Website, DevTeam:
