    Hey, this is my first post on here. From the looks of it, I might be able to get the help I need.

    So I have a jailbroken iPhone 5 that's running on iOS 6.1. About a week ago, I found out that my battery can no longer hold a charge. The only way it will stay on is if it's plugged into a wall charger. So it's pretty much useless (unless its plugged in) which I can't have it plugged in all the time because I'm always on the move.

    I made an appointment to go to the Apple store on Friday (October 11th) to either get the battery replaced, or get a completely new phone. I want to restore my phone not only because I'm dying to have iOS 7, but because I'm worried they'll see its jailbroken and then they won't help me. I keep having problems.. I tried putting it into DFU mode but after about 10 minutes, iTunes said "Error 9006" I tried again and got the same error. I don't know what to do.

    Will they even look to see if its jailbroken? Will they just replace the battery and then I'll be on my way? Thank you in advance!

    Likely the bad battery is preventing the restore

    When a new iOS is out which is bigger than your actual iOS you never could restore officially your iOS-devica via .ipsw to an old iOS-version. And this is what you want to do!

    If you have your SHSH blobs for iOS 6.1 you could use them to merge them into to .ipsw and then try a restore.

    The OP is trying to restore to iOS 7 which is currently signed by apple

    SHSH blobs do no good for an iPhone 4S/5/5C/5S right now
