itunes error 9, 21...what are my options?
I am very sorry about the extremely long description but I wanted to give the full story.
About two months ago I happened upon 2 broken iPhone 3G's....one had a cracked screen and broken LCD and the other kept giving error 23 when restoring so was completely useless. See this thread on hackint0sh (http://www.hackint0sh.org/f148/150803.ht...)
I took the display assembly out of the iphone with the restoring issue and installed it in the other iPhone. Everything seemed to work perfectly. However after a few days it spontaneously entered a reboot loop...often just ending up on a whit screen. When I repeatedly rebooted it, it eventually booted up normally. So I restored a few more times (it gave me many errors but I persisted (21 was common I think)) and eventually these issues stopped...until about two weeks ago.
Every once in a while it decided to go on a reboot loop but until today I had no problem just holding home and sleep a few times to eventually get it back to normal.
Today it entered a very familiar reboot loop and I just cant get it out. Errors 9 and 21 are very common when restoring. There are few others which I will edit this with. I have tried dfu and regular restore mode countless times.
So basically I have still got the carcass of the other broken iphone mentioned above.
Is there any way I could use the parts which are still useful to bring this phone back to life.
Again sorry for the extreme length of the question. I would really sincerely appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance,
edit: I can post itunes restore logs if that would help
edit 2: here is a restore log which returns error 9:
here is a different error 9 :
here is an error 21:
here is an error 1604:
here is an error 1603:
here is error 14:
I have 25 restore logs from the past two days and many are different..I'll just post a few.
Is this a good question?
