So last Saturday I attempted to install the newest update on my iPhone 4s, and in the process it bricked. I cannot get it to recover/restore (forget which term is which) but I have tried doing it in recovery mode, and dfu mode with no success. I keep getting error 29 when it is verifying user data. Background: the day before the phone would be charging, but only if reset would it update the battery percentage. Additionally, the phone has water damage from over 8 months ago. I had the screen replaced in December. The geniuses offered little help and only did what I did before concluding it was a combo software/hardware error, what it was or how they came to that conclusion was not said to me. I really cannot afford a new phone, does anyone have suggestions/ past experience with this issue? I heard that replacing the battery may work. Thoughts?
