Hi all,

I have spent a lot of time trying to restore an old iPhone 3G, which was Jailbroken using redsn0w (I think) some long time ago. Well, I decided to erase all setting and now am stuck at the restore from iTunes screen.

I have tried to download a few customised IPSW's but can't seem to find the right one..

I know I haven't given much info. as I am not sure what I need to know to get it back working again, hence the post.

So, any help would be really usefull.

Thanks in advance..

Sorry for the delay in getting back.

The message says: The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occured (1015). I have looked up this on the internet and it's about backwards compatibility I think but I now can't find the right ipsw to make it work again!!
QUOTE Thanks
