    Default Iphone 3g off of craigslist stuck in dfu

    I purchased an Iphone 3g 8gb off of craigslist. I put it into DFU mode to restore it with Itunes. I received error 1015 from Itunes. I did some searching on google and tried downloading Iliberty to restore the phone and get it going. Iliberty did not detect the phone. It is stuck in DFU mode and Itunes does recognize it and detect it yet refuses to update the firmware.

    How can I get this phone either restores to a natural firmware or unlocked/jailbroken. I'm on ATT, however I would like to activate and use the phone without a data plan.

    Let me know if there's anything I can do to get this sucker working, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.

    I believe its some kind of developer or pre release firmware that's on it and I don't know what version of Itunes it was used with.

    I tried Itunes 8.2.X (the latest one) and with firmware 3.0.1 (again the latest one for firmware as well) and it gave me the 1015.

    get itunes 8.2.0 and try that using the newer way for dfu mode

    Attach the phone to the pc
    Turn the phone off
    Hold power and home together for *exactly* 10 seconds
    Release power but keep holding home until the pc beeps as a USB device is recognized.
    At no point will the display come on. Now your restore should work.

    if not then one of these others should work DFU Mode | iPhone News, Help and Guides
