Urgent Help Appreciated Stuck in DFU / WSOD
hi Guys and Gals!
first thing first, thanks for a great site. i have spent the past 3 days glued to it trying to figure this one out without bothering anyone but it seems its beyond me so i am calling out for help.
i think with this fault a picture can speak a thousand words so i have made a VERY BASIC web page with a load of piccys on so people can have a look and see what they think. below is copied and pasted from the bottom of the site so dont read it twice
This all started when i replaced the back of the phone as it was worn, after removing all the components from the old case the camera lens fell away from the cmos sensor, i thought it was no big deal just leave the cam out and order a new one and fit it when it arrives, i put the phone back together and it was all fine used it for 2 days then the new cam arrived. I stripped the phone down again fitted the cam and this is where we are now. I have tried it without the cam in case this is causing the problem but it is the same.
I did a lot of reading on forums to see if anyone else has had the same issues but no one seems to have??? There are loads of reports of dropping and then white screen, but the phone still rings so that is obviously the LCD ribbon that has come loose, there are also reports of total white screen and the phone will not even restore, but mine is in between the 2 reported problems.
I read in a forum and on apples site that it could be a bad USB lead / USB config but i have tried 4 different leads on 4 different computers 2 of them having never had itunes installed until yesterday. I also read that it could be the dock connector, so i have replaced this today in the hope that it would sort it but still nothing, saying that i don’t recall having error 2005 since i have replaced this
By trade i am a computer engineer, so i am not your average chump that knows nothing, however with that said i am not an iphone engineer, so i could be missing something really simple.
As far as i know i have used redsnow to flash the latest IPAD baseband to the phone, it has told me on the screen that it is doing this, if it has or not remains to be seen.
If anyone has any info or ideas that could help me i would be very grateful
Thanks in advance
this site should be at http://shoes4pigeons.co.uk/iphone.htm
One more thing, please be patient while the piccys load i thought i had resized them more than i had! Sorry

The 2005 restore error is normally a hardware error. Aside from that I can't help much more.
Can you publish on pastebin your restore logs?
