won't boot shows either battery logo or apple logo
my 3gs won't boot/startup to the home screen
itunes picks it up shows capacity etc etc
After holding down the power + home button, i tired restoring it seemed to work but rebooted then was stuck on apple logo then showed red battery with lighting bolt then shows apple logo again.
It does not seem to be taking or holding charge
I tested what google told me was the battery fuse for continuity and also the two charging fuses and they are not blown.
Tried restarting computer with iphone plugged in, plugging iphone in while holding home button, holding my tounge the right way etc
The phone is completely stripped down at the moment. How can i charge the battery by itself (battery out of phone) can i just cut a usb cord and put the power straight onto the battery terminals?
Is this a good question?
