    Ok so I have an iphone 3G (4.2.1). I jailbroke it and installed ipad baseband so I could unlock using ultrasnow to be able to use with a T-mobile carrier.
    Me being dumb I did the "erase all content and settings". After that all i got was the apple logo displayed on the screen.
    Somehow got it to the recovery screen (I think i used Tiny Umbrella) and now im stuck in the recovery loop and im still stuck there now. When I go to restore with itunes i get the itunes error (1015).

    From what I understand from the research ive done is to fix this is... I have a create a custom .ispw by using redsnow and going into pwned dfu mode, load the custom no baseband ispw in itunes and then im good. Well i cant even go into DFU mode since im stuck on the recovery loop.
    All i can get to is a mode called "WTF" mode.

    Is the phone now done for?

    in all honesty 3.x.x was probably the best OS for the 3G. i remember running 4.x.x on my 3G and there were issues with lagging and overall smoothness (stock)

    from this point if you're wanting a better "experience" a hardware upgrade would be the best choice
