has anyone solved error 53?

So I have an iphone 6 that has water damage and is bricked beyond help, I'm considering getting a new logic board ($300) vs a new device ($600+). However after many hours of research I've seen several people reaching the same issue, the infamous E53. Has anyone found a solution to this problem or am I doomed to buying a new device? Im fully aware that the home button must be paired to the processing chip, and that "Apple is the only people who have access to that info." Don't tell me that. They buy all their parts from a third party like every other cellphone company etc. So surely there is someone out there who has the magic password so to speak.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Do you still have the original home button flex?

I have been searching for a way to bypass error 53 (E53), a specific way has yet to be discovered.

As Im still working on the solution, my encounters with E53 have caused me to further explore

the root cause.

Various parties state that the original home button flex must be attached for you to bypass the update.

This is true to a certain extent, as "tricking" the logic board into believing that the original is intact; we may

be able to bypass the lock, which then we can update the settings on the device.

Easier said then done...

I am physically working day and night to figure this out, I am chemical engineer and have been doing

iPhone repairs since the iPhone 4. I can truly say that this is a very different beast, then previous years.

My experience with coding mobile applications, has led me to conclude that the method will require

quite a few tools to successfully carry out the procedure....

I will keep you guys updated.

Please email me at as suggestions or extra knowledge is always needed.
