okay mods im posting after a long time so excuse if any rules are not followed ... tell me and i shall fix ma errors
WHO DOES THIS APPLY TO : IPHONE v1 (2g) ..
SYMPTOMS OF THE PROBLEM :
1. iphone shows apple logo when connected to cable
2. Iphone shuts off immediately after cable is removed
3. Itunes shows error 1611 while in restore mode, trying to restore
4. itunes shows error 1604 while in Dfu mode, trying to restore.
dont worry phone is not bricked/ not all is lost
Also may not apply to all cases..
i had two iphones with the same problem as stated above .. searched everywhere including hackintosh ... got no real solution ... except some soldering of capacitors / or soldering battery wires with connectors... tried all but did not work
SOLUTION ... was very elementary ... head over to ifixit for a guide on how to open the iphone
next......... get hold of a spare oem battery ( i got mine for 11$ shipped)
simply replace the battery
while resoldering the terminals
be sure to go in the following order
black then white then red...
(also make sure you unplug the connector which connects to the switches on the back panel)
THE ABOVE FIXED BOTH IPHONES ..... I FOUND OUT FROM REPAIR techs... THEY WERE ASKING FOR 150$ I GOT MINE DONE FOR 11$
PLUS I HAD OTHER STUFF LYING AROUND soldering equip/ etc
i made this guide cuz i found no concrete solution and my phones were lying for a while just dead
