iPhone won't restore in DFU mode
My iPhone 6 Plus has been stuck in a reboot loop since yesterday (the Apple logo appears repeatedly for a few seconds). I can manage to get it in DFU mode, and get iTunes to recognize it, but once the restore starts (the logo appears on the phone with a progress bar), my phone crashes. iTunes shows error 4013, since my phone reboots after crashing & disconnects.
Any insight on what I can do to fix this problem? Also, could this be a damaged hardware issue? (I previously left my phone on a gaming console that was very hot - although I was still able to use it normally for 2 weeks before it crashed into this reboot loop. I did, however, notice that one side of my screen would occasionally be darker than the other in the last couple days).
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated!
Is this a good question?
