Stuck in reboot, 4013, won't restore

Someone else replaced the battery two months ago before we bought the iphone 6, last Friday my gf took her phone but it wouldn’t power on anymore. It would only power on in the 3amp wall socket, but then it reboots every four seconds. So we placed it in iTunes mode for charging. Connected it to the laptop after few hours, but while restoring we would get an error 9.

Probably something wrong with the battery, lifted the screen and saw that there was missing a screw of the battery/dock connector holder, the battery connector was not completely clicked in *yells*.

Now the phone will show its apple logo without a charger, but still restarts after a few seconds. Back to iTunes mode and left it for a couple of hours to charge. After exiting recovery mode (Reiboot Pro) it still keeps rebooting.

Next step; Restoring in DFU mode. Normally when the firm/software package is unpacked, it shows waiting for iPhone, it then disconnects , changing the mode in the iPhone and then goes further with updating/restoring, but now it disconnects, change the mode in the iPhone (i think) and then disconnects again, leaving an error.

First had 4005 but after replacing the dock connector and battery and leaving the screen off it changed to 4013.

What else can I do?

The battery and dock connector where bought at the shop where I always buy my (i)phone parts. Never had problems with parts except delivery damages. Used also different computers and cables, Macbook and latops.

I've seen similar situations on the iPhone 6 and in the end, it is a problem with the logic board. If you have tried all of the recovery modes (rest, hard reset, DFU etc.) then really, there;s not much else you can do. This may be related to a bad U2 charging IC or some other latent issue like previous water damage or multiple falls.

I would recommend you find a shop that does micro-soldering repairs so that they can properly troubleshoot your phone.

I'm affraid you're right, probably the chip has been fried when it has been to the wall socket overnight while the battery was not fully connected. If i can find a repair shop who does the U2 fix, i'll give it a try and post here what happend.
