I just replaced screen on an iPhone 5 (not 'S') phone myself. New bat sorted it.
I just replaced screen on an iPhone 5 (not 'S') phone myself. New bat sorted it.
 
It was boot looping, I put it into recovery mode (screen showing usb+iTunes logo) but it would error 21 on pc iTunes, and 2001 on mac iTunes. (strange that they read differently)
 
I then realised I had damaged the battery cable. bought a new cable and the restore worked!
 
HURRAR!
 
note: without the battery installed, the restore will not work.
