1011 Fixed - Need Confirmation
Has anyone else tried this?
Got an iBrick with a 1011 error?
For those of you out there with iBricks because you opened the phone and got an error message 1011 (perhaps others) stating iTunes could not restore the phone, there appears to be a solution to this. It was reported by one person that they recovered from this error by first unsoldering the positive connection to the battery (the red cable) and then disconnecting the communications circuit board from the logic board. When put back together and the lead resoldered the iPhone could restore again. It is not known whether just unsoldering the battery lead would have done the trick, so you might want to try just unseating the two boards first (without having to solder). If this works for you, please let me know so I can share it with everyone.

It shouldn't matter whether it's black or red, both are required to complete the circuit. If the positive lead is removed, why does one need to disconnect the comm board? There's no power!
Is there's an internal reset switch upon disconnection of the boards, I doubt it.
People, let's not rush out and do this, it's not that "easy" to remove the boards.
Let the folks with steady hands lead the way.
