Replaced Case, Can't Restore
I recently replaced the screen and the rear housing on my iPhone 6 Plus. The Logic board, battery, home button & speaker are original, the rest has been replaced. There seems to be a few bugs in it so I am trying to do a fresh install of iOS to see if it's software or hardware related, but keep getting error 2005 (USB connection error). I am able to connect it to my PC (windows 7) and make a back up through iTunes, but can't seem to restore as new. I've tried using a downloaded copy of 10.3.3 and also tried letting iTunes restore to current, but neither work. I've made sure windows and iTunes are up to date. I've reinstalled all the USB drivers and switched USB cords from non apple to apple cords and nothing seems to work. The only thing I can think of is since the lightning connection is no longer an OEM part it is treating it as a non apple part.
Other then taking the phone apart again and replacing the lightning connection, are there any suggestions on fixing or bypassing the USB connection error?
Is this a good question?
