Touch ID Replacement - Phone Stuck in DFU Wont Restore

Hi everyone. I replaced the screen, home button and silver plate with the Touch ID ribbon on the back. I know its not the screen because the screen completely worked perfect and the phone even booted up after I replaced all this. But I completely forgot that replacing the two other things and then trying to restore completely screws your phone. Now I know Apple released a fix to Error 53, this is not my problem. My problem is that when i'm restoring it gets to the VERY end on the phone (like not even an inch left) and iTunes just stops restoring and the iPhone completely just disappears on iTunes (almost as if it was disconnected i guess). Then after about 5 seconds the phone turns black and restarts then goes back to DFU mode. I have the latest iTunes as well. Pleeeease help I don't wanna be out of a 500 dollar phone!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Have you tried put the original screen and everything since that worked before you replaced the screen and see if it finishes restoring. If not I know that there our programs that I paid for to remove iPhones out of DFU and restore the phone. If you want I would be more then glad to help you with this just mail me your phone. I had a customers phone that was doing the exact something and it took me two weeks to finally crack it and restore completely without rebooting and keeping me off of iTunes. My next suggestion would be buying a software to restore your phone.
