What is the Easiest Way to Bypass iTunes 1015 Error?

Hello Jaxov peeps, I restored my iPhone 4 to iOS 4.3.5 last week to get a fix from Apple. So after two days, I got my iPhone back and then tried to downgrade it back to iOS 4.3.3 using TinyUmbrella and my saved SHSH blobs. But when I tried to downgrade my iPhone 4 using iTunes, I got the message "Error 1015". This is my first time to downgrade an iOS device. Please help. Thanks.

Hello Jefferson, so far, the easiest and fastest way to bypass iTunes error 1015 as well as kick iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch out of recovery mode loop is by using the standalone version of TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery). This fixrecovery43.exe is a special tool for jailbreakers and this tool works on both Mac OS X and Windows computers. If you aren’t familiar with the steps on how to use TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) software then you can follow the step by step guide posted below:

Step 1: Download the latest version TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) for Windows (Direct Link) or Mac OS X (Direct Link).

Step 2: Download Zlib1.dll from here and put it in the same location where fixrecovery43.exe is located.

Step 3: Then connect your iPhone 4 into the computer via USB cable and power OFF your device.

Step 4: Now, launch iTunes as well as the downloaded TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) and put your iPhone into DFU mode.

  • Press and hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds.
  • Then release Power button after 10 seconds but continue holding the Home button for another 10 seconds.

Step 5: That’s it! TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) will start fixing the error on your device.

Anyway, you can also follow our step by step guide on how to downgrade iPhone firmware using TinyUmbrella which can be found on this blog post, as well as our tutorial on how to jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.3 using JailbreakMe 3.0 that was posted here.
