    As the title says, it was stuck in a recovery loop, I went into DFU mode and it starts to restore but then I get an error code 9 or 14 (I've had both errors on different attempts) and it fails midway through the repair.

    Any suggestions? I was careful and thought everything went well, never brought the screen back past 90 degrees and things came apart well.

    What could I have broken, what are my options?

    So I bought a new battery since I read a few places that sometimes a bad new battery causes the problem...but still the same problem, it now fails at the same point in the restore and gives error code 14.

    In hindsight , you probably should of just had apple replace the battery for $79. This would of prevented error 9 and 14 from coming up in the first place.

    If you change the iphone battery for less then $79 and you break it and have to pay $269 for a swtich, I don't see how its saving money.

    Maybe you broke the USB hardware?

    Have you tried erasing the files in the lockdown folder?? I don't think that would help
