    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?

    Thanks!

    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.

    Did you follow the instructions for changing the battery? Instructions can be found at www.ifixit.com.

    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?

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