iPhone wont fully restore, stuck in recovery mode (code 29)
Just got an iPhone 3gs model A1303 from an old friend in school. She said it was water damaged and the screen was unresponsive. The screen is in fact unresponsive. I am attempting to restore the iPhone before I even attempt to replace the screen. Of course my hopes weren't high considering there is water damage.
I attempted to restore the iPhone two times so far and the first time it didn't finish,, the second time it did, but resulted in a message saying the phone could not be restored, with "error 29" or "code 29" I don't remember. I dont see it being financially beneficial to purchase and install a new logic board for such an old phone. Any ideas?
Thanks a lot
