itunes error 29 while custom 4.1 or 4.2.1 restore!

3GS 32 GB New Bootrom itunes error 29 knowing that i changed all kinds of batteries from APN 0431 to 0435 even though tried the board on another newbootrom 3GS chasis BUT NOTHING HELPED ME OUT - I have SHSH for 4.1 & 4.2.1 the phone is with BB 6.15. The phone after the full restore goes either to recovery mode or DFU mode alternatively. The last thing i tried was installing custom 4.2.1, phone reboots to recovery mode, I used GreenPois0n the phone goes fine and boots up like charm, later on upon bootup and lockscreen the signal is always searching and every when and while like about 2 or 3 minutes phone reboots continuously without any clue, rthermore the battery shows a full battery and when the charger gets unplugged the battery still at the sme percentage. I almost visited billions of websites saying error 29 is a battery issue but i gave up really and it is not a battery error but in fact a hardware one,so sirs is there any advice or issue or solution please??. Thx in advance for your help and time. Regards

I had this same problem the other day while trying to restore to 4.3.3. I did not receive error 29, but I received a sleuth of other error messages. I too had my SHSH blobs saved. Now, are you running Mac OS? Do you use Tiny Umbrella? I was stuck in an endless recovery loop no matter what I tried, but if you go to the TinyUmbrella Website, you can download a utility called "recoveryfix-osx". Just complete the restore as you normally would and run that terminal command utility. It worked for me. Good Luck.

Try iReb......Put in original battery for phone try custom fw again

Tried all pwnd means from redsn0w to iReb but no success tried several custom fw but also no success :(, there would be only 1 solution a hardware one to skip the checkup of the batter, probably this can help but who knows which and where and how.

by

have you got a friend willing to let you borrow their phone? try swapping the motherboards and then installing fw.

I have 2 3GS and both are new bootrom but also no success I tried almost everything but stuck with this chunky issue, even thought i took away the battery for 2 days and restart the operation again but with the same error 29!!!!
