iPad 3 Restore Error 9
One of my customers brought in an iPad 3 (A1416) to me with a battery fault. It was completely dead when it arrived. The battery was replaced, and it powered on fine. Although it was disabled. I tried to restore it but I keep getting the error 9 message.
It seems to happen at the start of the restore process just after it is "extracting software". It resets, the progress bar appears on the ipad, then restarts again then I get the error 9 message in itunes. The progress bar doesn't even make it to 1%.
I have already tried a new charging port connector, multiple different official cables, both Windows and Mac computers, and I still have the same problem. I've used an OEM battery and an OEM charging port. I've even moved the logicboard to another ipad 3 but it's still coming up with the error 9 message.
Any ideas as to whats wrong with it? Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am all out of ideas. Also returning it to Apple is not an option.
Is this a good question?
