iPhone 6 plus boot loop after screen repair

Hi Everyone!

We had a iPhone 6 plus come in yesterday with a bad lcd, you could still see the lock screen, but there were lines and black spots on the screen.

I did a simple screen replacement n it, even unplugged the battery before repair, when I went to turn the phone back on, it started boot looping. Ive tried everything, from unplugging camera flexes to another battery.

Ive also tired updating thru iTunes, however, when ever it gets to the point where it loads the software on the phone, it boot loops again.

Any ideas??

Chosen Solution

A boot-looping device can be caused by many things.

Try these things (if you haven't already) to see if anything helps:

  • Try a hard reset (Home & Power button for 10 secs)
  • Use a genuine Apple Lightning connector
  • Use a genuine Apple charging brick and let it charge overnight
  • Try to connect it to different computers (mac/pc if possible) with an updated iTunes
  • Put the phone in recovery mode (search DFU Mode). Careful, this can reset your data
  • Use 3uTools for putting it in and out of Recovery Mode
  • Use 3uTools to flash the firmware (you can't downgrade)
  • Check the condition of all the flexes (with magnification)
  • Disconnect the Front Camera Ribbon from the logic board and reboot your phone
  • Disconnect the screen assembly completely and see if iTunes will recognize the phone.

Otherwise, you may have a logic board issue. A shop that also does micro-soldering can go deeper if the problem is not modular in nature.
