After a reboot it just stayed black, i can just see the back-light turning on.

I tripple-checked the connections, but nothing helped.

It was a faulty display

Managed it to boot, but the screen kept turning white in some angles( especially with a closed phone) so probably a cable is broken.

I've got this issue too, but i disassembled the phone n reassembled carefully to fix 1 of 3 issues i had n 1 worked but 2 needed software reinstallation. i think sometimes the phone does detect authenticity n as such gets a boot loop for incompatible screen type

Was the battery unplugged prior to plugging or unplugging the display cables?

Also the only time I ever had a bootloop on a screen replacement was when the screen was faulty itself.
