    Hey, my friend gave me an iPhone he thought I could fix, but I cant get it to restore. It always comes up with an error 23. Also you can't turn on the phone unless you plug it into a computer or power source, but the phone will only show the apple boot logo and wont finish booting. I can put it into DFU mode and iTunes recongnizes it but when I try and restore it comes up with an error 23
    here is the error log file iTunes gives me
