    Hi there,

    My iphone will not turn on, its able to connect to my mac, only in dfu.

    After trying to restore itunes says: error 23.

    Read a lot of forums but always whitout a real solution... Most say its water damage but mine has a different story:

    Jailbroken, custom firmware 4.2.1 on baseband 6:15:00.

    Used it for a couple of months, never opened cydia. A friend of mine opened the cydia app and it started updating. Then the iphone slowly died in 2 days:

    First battery fast drainage and after the battery died it will not turn on again. Connected to usb power cable: able to connect to itunes in fdu: error 23

    Anyone any clue?

    Thanks a lot!!

    so its a hardware error. how unfortunate. if its still under warranty go to apple and get a replacement. if not n ur felling bold try replacing the dock connector, connector 4 inside the iphone. U can buy replacements on ebay for $10

    First off, how do you figure it's a hardware error:confused:

    Second, he can't take it in regardless if he just bought it last week–baseband updated to 6.15.00.

    Have you tried restoring to a different fw? Is your phone hacktivated?

    That's pretty lucky, technically your warranty was void with the ipad baseband.

    Also remember once you have the ipad 6.15 baseband you must always use a custom firmware that doesnt update the baseband. All normal IPSW files will fail after doing ipad baseband.
