So this is he story. First off, it was a smooth running, never opened or modded 5S on 9.1. I only have have 7 or 8 apps on it. So I saw that a jailbreak was available. Finally....I just want a good ad blocker and a few other options. Download it, follow installations, it's done. Cool. Go to open cydia, it is up for 1-2s and crashes. Doesn't make it past the load screen. Also got the 'low HD space' pop up. Which is bogus as I have 12 gigs open. Whatever. The JB worked but cydia had a bad install is what I guessed. Short story, I found in this case between using cyber duck, ifunbox and terminal I was unable to find a way to get openSSH or a fresh install of cydia on this device/OS combo. So I decide f-it. Will try and restore. I go to my backup, iTunes does its thing but cydia is still on there after the fact, weird (I didn't back it up with cydia). They I decided to just "upgrade" to 9.3.1 (after some research of course). Plug phone into iMac, go to update, says I can't. I don't remember the words but basically said my device can't be supported. Which is dumb because I have only one CPU. So I unplug it and go to the phone settings, erase and restore. Do it. It does it. After a while it tries to boot, goes in the apple icon to blue screen loop, aka BLoD. Blue loop of death. I have done dozens of soft and hard resets both connected and disconnected from the CPU. Done the 'volume trick' and hold the home button for 2 minutes. The phone is a 300 dollar brick. It will not boot or restore, period. I get an error message but it doesn't give me an error number. At this point I figure maybe letting it drain the battery may prompt a different kind of reset, kind of the last ditch effort. So I am letting it sit trying to boot over night. Just hoping it will still charge if thee is any hope left. Has this happened to anyone? I have been scouring the net for hrs with no luck beyond the normal reset advice. Pretty sure my phone is scrap. Luckily I have a 4s that has worked better than my 5s has ever so I am not stuck forking over another 300+. Any recommendations appreciated.
