iPhone 5s Panic: we are hanging here

Today i've got an iPhone 5s from a friend. He told me he was just reading his mail when this black screen with white letters pops up and down below it says: panic: we are hanging here...

This is what i've tried so far:

  • Connecting via iTunus - update
  • Connecting via itunes - reboot/recover
  • Tried via Recboot to exit recovery
  • Tried a manual reset

I don't know which options i've got left here, thanks for thinking with me

Hey @muuresch, this error sounds like there's an issue with your logic board. Reassemble then disassemble your device first. Then if the issue still persists, purchase and replace your logic board.

-Let me know how it goes.
