Hmm...never trust eBay sellers to be telling the least when it comes to iPhones.

Before making any assumptions, try to identify what components are missing. For example, are they all caps on the VCC_MAIN line? If so, then someone was short hunting. You don't necessarily need to replace all of them to get the phone to boot/operate. Are the missing components on various power rails or subsystems?

Try to figure out what was wrong initially. Test all the of the PMIC output rails for shorts. If you see issues with PP_CPU/ may be SOL.

none of the caps to the left of u2000 are going to ground and im not getting anything coming from the vcc_main end of c5283_rf or c5284_rf


now all the caps down that side are to ground, think iv got all off vcc_main caps on and its drawing 0.09 -0.10 now. theres caps and coils on the front side that are shorted to ground but not drawing enough to tell me which is bad, im guessing that u2000 is knackered
