Bricked?? Battery Blew Up?? Help!!
Iphone 2G 8g hdd OS 2.x,
PC: Windows Vista x64
Everything was working 100% for the past 1 1/2 year,
until five days ago when the phone went completely dead!
Events that accured are as follows:
picked up phone from cradle after overnight charge half hour later the phone went dead. (I figured no problem) placed phone on cradle to recharge...
hour or so later I realized the phone was still completely dead...
Puzzled?? I did the following:
I connected Iphone to PC and got nothing!! Itunes did not detect the phone!
Tried DFU (only because I have a 2 year old son who loves to play with the phone) thinking he might of gotten a hold of it and did some type of magic to it :woz: and once again nothing!
No Safe mode, no dfu, no itunes, no pc detection
After hours of countless reading and attempts I left the phone alone but connected to the PC hours later I realized the PC had detected the phone but it read "USB device not recognized", I opened up itunes but itunes did not detect the iphone.
I tried everything during countless of reading:
Ziphone, ILiberty, QuickPwn, etc...
and yet I can not get the iphone detected at all. Finally, after reading someone else's similar problem I decided to remove the SIM card when boom I had somewhat of a problem removing the sim card due to some type of residue that was all over the sim card.
I decided to open the iphone, remove the cover and I noticed that there's some type of slime over the iphone assuming it's coming from the battery
Here comes the questions:
1) Is the phone repairable ??
2) What should I do next ??
3) What caused the chain of reaction ??
Do you think the battery went completely dead to the point where I ended up blowing it up by continue recharging?
or could it be something I am completely overlooking ??
Im clueless, I'm not really trying to dump to much into this project
Thnx in advance for all your info!! !
