    Hi guys,

    I was on snapchat the other day when my iPhone 5 randomly shut itself down. I thought the battery was dead so i plugged in the charger and it started booting. But it didn't get past the boot screen and when i plugged in my mac it didn't recognized it.

    So i tried putting it in DFU mode and to restore it. But every time i try this iTunes says Preparing iphone -> phone reboots -> iTunes "Waiting for iPhone" and after 5 minutes it gives the 4005 error. I tried different computers and cables but always the same problem.

    Anyone an idea on what i could try next, i don't have any warranty left so..

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Sounds like a hardware issue.
    I'd bring it to a repair place to have it checked out.
