My sincere apologies. I always forget about the Mac. Anyhow here is Apple's answer to your problem http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1275 and it does have the Mac listed and here is more info for Mac and XP http://www.redmondpie.com/fix-itunes-100... the final one is for Mac only http://blackra1n.org/2010/03/resolve-err... hope that this will guide you in the right direction. sorry I did not get it right the first time ;)

iTunes error 1015 is always along with the "plug into iTunes" screen stuck on iPhone. Indeed, that is the common error "iPhone stuck on recovery mode". Easy and quick way to fix it is to use the ReiBoot. Have a try by following this guide: How to exit iPhone recovery mode easily and quickly.

If you've got tinyumbrella you cam use that to boot out of recovery using your saved shah blobs. The error is that iTunes recognises a corrupt version of it's ios and will not complete signing. You need to download a "clean" version of the ios you want... For example download from ericbruin or iclarified or uninstall iTunes and reinstall(save all your stuff somewhere safe and the put back in library after you've done a clean install) you can try going to a friend and using their iTunes... This sets up a new iPhone and apple will then send a fresh install instead of trying to load your corrupt version. Please start your own question

I have had this issue just recently and have tried everything possible to fix it. I've come to the conclusion there is no way to fix the problem, TinyUmbrella doesn't work, you will just get more errors with that program. IRev doesn't work, same thing more errors. None of the videos on YouTube have the answer (most are for Windows users). The only solution is to take it to a tech shop and get them to restore it for you. It will cost $60-$100 bucks and then you have to restore your service provider which will cost you another pile of money etc etc etc. :( Not the answer you where looking for.

It appears that despite receiving this error the OS did in fact restore. What worked for me personally was downloading Bootrec (which kicks it out of the recovery loop) and back onto the Home Screen.

itunes is a load of rubbish they dont want you to do anything for free, if the did they would use the file explorer to move files. I am having trouble with my iphone 3g,it iwas stuck on the apple logo then i went on youtube, looked for a solution, and it told me to restore my iphne. so i did then once itunes had finished that, it came up with error 1015,and was then stuck in recovery mode. i was then looking for, how to fix an iphone 3g stuck in recovery mode and it told me todo the same thing,once itunes had finished that it came up with another error mesage saying error 3194.

what a waste of £150 when itunes wont let me restore my iphone. i would advise anyone to stick to android or windows if this problem cant be fixed.
