did any one figure out how this button attaches.. the old button just pealed off cleanly.. no sign of solder.. I'm hoping its some sort of heat activated dry glue.. will let you know if I get any success with this.. wish me luck.. I'm going in..
Hi.. I tried a new battery, that's what caused the boot loop (3600mah).. I fixed this on this phone.. Maybe entirely different cause for some one else.. I noticed a power drain last night after swapping the gutt's to a new shell.. Everything worked fine, so presumed the battery was shot.. So changed it for a high powered battery, which seemed to work fine.. Was about to call the client to say its fixed, one last test.. Boot loop!! Any way.. After searching lots of posts like this one decided to check for shorts.. Took every thing back out, tested the board while it was unscrewed, but still in place.. It worked! So screwed it back together testing the boot sequence with every few screws.. The very last connector.. Front facing camera flex! Boot loop.. If I unplug it while in boot loop it works fine and boots up.. So I'm just waiting for a replacement flex and preying the fault is the flex and not on the logic board.. Fingers crossed
Just for anyone with a similar problem.. I just had this fault after a full chassis change on an iPhone 5.. after stripping it all back down and carefully putting it back together and checking the boot function after each screw.. It turned out to be the very last connector I put back on the board.. The problem was caused by the Front facing Camera flex.. There was nothing visible, but phone boots and charges no problem now.. just waiting for a replacement.. :)
