    Ok, just for the record: I was able to restore my iPhone, but it was rather painful. Once I have figured how to enter DFU mode, I tried to restore firmware but have had "hang" problems: the update process was freezing at some point. I have noticed that when you repeatedly launch update process it makes more and more progress. So, I was doing "restore-reboot-restore" for several hours until it was able to make it all through. Once I have done my first successful update, the later updates ran is they should without any "hangs".

    Sorry for the late reply...

    Make sure that your USB port is a USB 2.0 that's powered:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_2.0#Power

    I'm assuming you're using PC... tell me if I'm wrong (i used mac to j'b'k mine)

    most cheap usb ports out there that you can buy is not powered, so buy a 2.0 Hub that provides power.

    email me if you get any problems. (kelvinky.ho@gmail.com)

    No, USB Power is not the case since I use the same USB port to charge my iPhone and it works ok.

    I've read this thread and it seams pretty similar to where I'm at. I've messed up my iphone. I've got the iTunes symbol and USB connection symbol and can't get it off that. When I try and reload 1.1.1, 1.0.1 or 1.2.1 I get error 1015, error 1 or error 5!!

    I can't work out how to, from here, put it into proper DFU mode! Which I think is how I've messed it up.

    I told my girl friend it would take 10 mins to unlock 72hrs ago! Any help wld be well appreciated!.

    Cheers

    Try this:

    power off your phone, disconnect from your PC.

    run itunes on your computer - have the usb cable plug in to the computer but don't connec the phone yet.

    now hold power + home
    when you see the apple, release power but keep hold home.
    Now, while holding the home, use your other hand to connect the cable to your phone (this is tricky because you have to do it with one hand - or get someone to help you).

    Now hopefully itunes will dectec the phone and will say your phone is in recovery mode.... from here you can do the restore.

    treble13, here is how I do it (although I have figured out that you can put iPhone into DFU mode from any state, this method I like more): You should do this having iPhone connected to PC (or Mac). You have powered off iPhone, press Power, you will see Apple logo (that means that it start booting), then press and hold home + power... after ~7-8 secs it power off (the screen goes dark), but you still hold home and power buttons. While doing this you should count seconds and when you count to 10, release the power button, but keep holding home for another 15 seconds. After that nothing will seem to happen to iPhone (the screen still stays dark and the iPhone seem to stay powered off), but PC (i used it with Windows XP) will detect new hardware connected to USB - iPhone in DFU mode. This will happen only first time and on later times you will just hear USB connect sound which means that you can stop holding Home button - the iPhone is in DFU mode. If iTunes is running it will report that iPhone in recovery mode found. From this stage proceed with restoring iPhone firmware.
    Hope that helps.

    jailbreaking, activating and maybe even bringing the phone to its real destination (meaning being a phone) with a turbosim or similar will be one big pain in the ass to you if you are not even calm and clear enough to put your phone into dfu mode and check out the forum about the error 1015 thing, which simply doesnt matter after all. check this out:

    To break out of DFU mode;
    1) kill the iTunes Helper process
    2) reboot using brickr

    You're done.

    I seem to be having a problem similar to treble13...

    My iphone was an 1.1.1 version out of the box jailbraked and unlocked when out of the blue stopped working.
    All i get when i switch it on is the usb cable and itunes icon, and itunes recognizes it as being in recovery mode (automatically, without any intervention)
    When I click recovery, no matter custom choosing 1.1.1 version or simply clicking for 1.1.2 version, at some point it pauses with itunes indicating "waiting for iphone" and the iphone indicating the rolling sign of being busy. Mac computer or windows it pauses at the same point and I am forced to remove the USB cable to end it.
    I am also unable to access it through WinSCP.

    I guess its like my iphone is constantly on DFU mode...
    Should I try smaytum's idea? Because I read ibrickr is not compatible with 1.1.1

    error 1015 is what you're aiming for.

    then when the iPhone is in recovery after 1015 use ibrickr
