    Exclamation iphone 5 won't restore stuck on boot cycle
    Hi guys ,

    This is my situation I bought a iPhone 5 from the bay last week to replace my broken iPhone 4. The ad quoted a cracked screen but factory unlocked. So I changed my screen and put the simcard in and it worked fine for 2 days.

    The phone then ran out battery, once I charged it up the apple logo shows then it just reboots every 5 seconds.

    So it got me thinking had the phone been jailbreaked and unlocked, maybe? I really don't know as I couldn't play on it much but there certainly wasn't cydia installed! So now I'm stick with a phone which won't turn on and iTunes won't restore I get errors when trying iOS 7.0.4 or 7.0.6 and I either get error 4193 or 9 when restoring too iOS 7.1.

    I'd really like to get it fixed as I haven't had a phone for weeks now. By the way I have access to both PC and Mac.

    I hope you can help. Thank you.

    If you can put the phone into DFU mode, than download IPSW 7.1 and do SHIFT + RESTORE, or OPTION + RESTORE on a MAC

    bbrks thanks for the reply. I'm struggling to get the phone out of recovery mode. When I go to restore it just has the error and every time I boot up its in recovery. Is there a way to kick out of that so I can enter DFU mode? Bloody tricky mind you enetering DFU with a phone that restarts every 5 seconds. Is there a programme which can force DFU?

    Quick update. I got the phone into DFU and tried restoring with iOS 7.0.4, iOS 7.0.6 and iOS 7.1 - none of them worked I got the error number 9 each time. so im starting to think it could be hardware. Any one had similar issues?

    Error 9 should be a problem with USB connection, I guess, something is wrong with your USB cable, or connector on your iphone. Try changing cable and USB port for the start. And now, you can only restore to 7.1.

    I have tried lots of cables, different ports and computers. I changed the actual connector and that was successfully installed. However i now get a new error when restoring which is 2001. I have reset the SMC on my iMac still no luck.

    Thanks
