The information I read thus far seems to indicate that this caused by a failure of the baseband chip. Many have replaced this part to fix this issue. Is their a reliable indication that this is what's wrong. Restoring did not help in fact it hangs at the last part of the restore an eventually goes back to the restore the recovery mode screen. 927 is the date code in the S/N. Tried to apply the boot recovery fix but didn't help. Suggestions most welcome and encouraged!
Very last of the restore process

Kioes, certainly could have worded the title differently. Thanks for reading my post. I have what seems to be a bad BB chip given that I have no IMEI, no Wifi, along with no BB being reported it settings about. I was simply attempting to explore any other causes beforeaking this repair. Oddly, the way I can get the phone to boot into a normal home screen is by using redsnow and upgrading the BB to 6.15.00. Restoring through ITunes results in the recovery loop. No fixing it either with the fix recovery loop patch. The 6.15.00 BB very unstable, phone will shut down by itself and attemp to reboot ending up in Recovery mode again.
That's my issue, which is believed by others to be a bad BB CHIP. Got any other ideas as to another remedy to the issues reported?
Thanks very much!

Have you tried downgrading your baseband to 05.13.04? Perhaps your phone is not liking the new baseband and it is causing issues. Worth a shot. Although in my experience it is probably a bad BB chip.Twitter: @irevivalrepairs | Instagram: @irevivalrepairs
