Hey all, my sister gave me her Iphone 6s saying if i can fix it I can have it. I knew it was stuck in a boot loop. But i figure I give it a shot anyways, because I can use it as my music player. By bootloop I mean it's stuck on the apple logo. (The black background with silver apple, and not the white background with black apple I've seen in some videos)
I've tried a lot of different ways the last few days but everything I've tried has been nothing but headaches... I tried setting it into recovery mode, in Itunes, and even DFU mode in Itunes. Everything is up to date itunes wise the latest version, and even let iTunes pick the correct latest ispw for the phone... but it keeps failing with the unknown error message (9). I've tried on two different computers, but it still fails.
Someone mentioned that it could be my cable? but if that was the case wouldn't I know it right away when if the cable won't hold a consistent connection? I know I heard the connect and disconnect sounds when it was trying to load the frimware via iTunes
So then I've tried using Imyfone fixppo, Tenorshare Reiboot thinking they were free.. but gave up on those because they wanted me to buy something, so I dropped those programs.
Then I tried 3utools to try flashing an older firmware on there as well but it still keeps failing. Maybe I'm doing something wrong and not using it correctly?
I also tried even going back to using redsn0w because I've used it before to get other phones out of said boot loops. But I know redsn0w is super oudated now.
Any suggestions would help
Anybody know what the stock firmware the iphone 6s came with? should I try loading that? Sorry for the long winded post but the account is still rather new and I can only post once a day for the time being
Also, I apologize if this is in the wrong area.
