Well the problem with data recovery is that the phone needs to be fixed at least to the point where the phone can be turned on.

I'm afraid you will have to take it to someone else that does micro-soldering.

A bad Tristar is very common for apple logo boot looping, it's rare for a phone to go dead if tristar was replaced. It can probably get fixed, could be that tristar was not put on properly or something like that
