iTunes 1015 Error: Stuck in Recovery Mode, How to Fix It?

Hi, I’m new in the jailbreak scene and I totally had no idea that updating my iPhone’s firmware will remove its jailbreak. And when I tried to downgrade it using the saved SHSH Blobs I get an error saying that my device is stuck in recovery mode and then I get the 1015 error. This is very frustrating and I can’t fix this error, I have tried almost everything. Can anyone help?
