Help: iPhone 3G - repeated unable to restore error 1015
Hello I have a simple iPhone 3G (NOT Jailbroken or Unlocked) - I was going to download the latest version of software via itunes and when I went to upgrade my phone somehow got stuck in restore mode... When I click restore it tries to do it's thing and just repeatidly ends with "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unkknown error occured (1015)."
The steps I have taken thus far:
Read a lot of guides on google for restoring, 1015 error...
I initially was doing this on a regular macbook, then I tried it on a macbook pro... and finally i've tried again on a Dell Latitude which did not ever previsouly have itunes installed at all so everything was a complete fresh copy... The ending result... THE EXACT SAME ERROR.
I have NO idea what to do and my phone is not under warranty...
If there is anyone out there who has any more advice for me or other things to try, please let me know, it will be greatly appreciat

iPhone 3G (8GB) Stuck In Restore Mode (Error 28)
I have an iPhone 3G that I'm trying to fix for a friend.
While updating to 3.0, his battery died and now the phone is stuck in recovery mode.
Restoring gives me error 28.
Alternate USB ports
New user account
Leopard 10.5.6, 10.5.7, and Vista Ultimate
DMZ mode for the router
Standard restore and update
Latest version of iTunes
Restarting the computer
iTunes recognizes the phone in both recovery mode and DFU mode, but gives me error 28 regardless.
I have searched (endlessly) and tried everything I possibly could.
This phone was apparently unlocked and jailbroken prior to the error. (2.2.1)
No other information is available.
Any possible fix?

[FIXED] iPhone 3GS stuck in pwned DFU - Restore error 1600
So today i decided to upgrade my iPhone 3gs from 5.0.1 to 6.1.2.
I tried to first restore my iPhone to 5.0.1 and then received the error 3194, meaning that it could not connect to apple.
Then after a while i figured it out, but got an error 1600.
I then removed the BB from the ispw in order not to upgrade my Baseband, and when tried again, my phone got stuck in the Pwned DFU mode.
It wont get out of it for anything. Tried Tinyumbrela fix, redsn0w fix and ireb fix. None of them worked. It seems to be forever in DFU.
If I try now to restore to 5.0.1 No BB, i get the error 1600 again.
If I try to restore to 5.0.1 stock, i get 3194.
Does anyone know what I can do?
I dont want to lose my phone nor my baseband =P
Is my iPhone gone?
iPhone 3gs new-boot (no SHSH)

iPhone 3G White screen of death (error 21)
This is a friends phone. It was given to him and I do not know the history of it.
I pulled the phone apart and reseated all of the cables, still stuck on the white screen and same errors. I replaced the LCD thinking that could be the problem, same thing.
When I flip the silent switch, the phone does not vibrate, indicating its not powered on.
When I plug the phone in, iTunes will detect it, but says it needs to be restored, so I select "restore and update", it starts the restore then gives me error 21.
The phone will not turn on otherwise. I even went as far as replacing the battery. I can put it in DFU mode, but the backlight doesn't come on.
I've tried all four USB ports and still have the same issue.

iPhone 3GS itunes can not restore error -1
I got an iPhone from this guy yesterday that he claimed "somehow got iOS that was missing the baseband" flashed onto it. i gave him $10 for it lol figuring id try to fix it, if not its worth more than 10 sold as parts.
it wont boot past the apple logo, when i try restoring via itunes (the latest version of itunes) and it goes all the way through the process then says "iTunes can not restore the iPhone. Unknown error -1" ive been doing some searching and cant seem to really find anything on error "-1" as they all seem to be 4 digit codes.
I also tried downloading an older version of iOS and shift clicking restore in iTunes and installing an older version that way with the same results. anybody have any other ideas? im kind of lost at this point...
