iPhone stuck in restore mode (Error 9) after drop.
I have recently been given a broken iPhone 6 to fix. The iPhone was given to me after being dropped. Below are some pictures of the damage:
Apparently the phone initially worked fine after the drop, but when the user restarted the device it became stuck in a Apple Logo bootloop (Boots to Apple Logo, then white screen, then shutdown). Upon receiving the device I placed it into DFU mode and attempted a restore. This failed with error 9. During the restore several things happened on screen, which I have described and included below:
I have attempted this restore several times since, sometimes it get stuck and sometimes it fails with error 9.
The The iPhone is now stuck in restore mode, which is progress I guess?
What I would like to know is what the likely cause of this could be? I have the parts to replace nearly everything but the logic board if necessary, just would like to know which parts could be causing the issue, or if there is something else I could try software wise?
Thank you for your suggestions/advice!
Is this a good question?
