Did you get it fixed?

1)Download custom firmware 4.1
2)Update to 4.1 via itunes. You will get error 1015
3)insert sim card
4)open redsn0w
5)when it askes to browse use same custom firmware as above
6)continue by ticking install Cydia only
7)switch off phone
8) go into DFU mode. Ensure you do not go back into recovery when trying to get into DFU. It has to be on DFU mode (black screen)

if still on recovery mode - use tiny umbrella to exit recovery

After this it may take you to emergency calls only screen. Follow steps 4-8 to activate

Tried several times and worked. Follow all steps

Any help let me know
