Title:

Misc Issues when replacing battery? Restarting on its own and Error 29

Text:

Put in a different battery and then:
 
1) Phone will restart on its own intermittently
 
2) Show a different battery percentage every restart
---

WILL NOT INCREASE % WHEN LEFT CHARGING ---

WILL NOT INCREASE % WHEN LEFT CHARGING ---
 
3) Occasionally cause the LCD to shake in the corners
 
4) Will not restore via iTunes (ERROR 29)
 
I tried replacing the charging port, re-flowing the battery connector and cleaning the whole board.
 
When I place the original battery back in the device all these symptoms disappear and the device will actually restore successfully. I have tried multiple OEM batteries. This isn't the first time I have ran into this issue.
 
I am almost positive there is no board damage.
Any help would be wonderful.
