Do I need a new baseband IC?
The iPhone 5 in question has water damage. The phone started showing 'Searching' and the imei is gone from the 'about' section. The phone tried to do an over the wifi ios update and it failed. I didn't notice the imei was missing at the time and I went to update ios via iTunes and that failed with an error 16. The phone is now stuck on the iTunes connect screen and will not restore in dfu, The iphone cannot be found... (no backup either) I researched the crap out of this and I am seeing people mention changing a baseband IC but not getting into any specifics. Does anyone know which location/name IC is needed to be reflow/replaced to fix this issue? Any way of restoring this phone? Thanks..
Is this a good question?
