    Last night my Iphone 5s suddenly rebooted and upon rebooting showed a blue screen. I couldn't get it to turn back on or even display an image. I tried the DFU mode button combo, but nothing worked. I read some stuff online about blue screens and learned that I could restore it using Itunes.

    Plugged it into iTunes and started restore. While plugged in to computer I could do the home+power to put phone into mode that it's recognized by iTunes, however there is still no image. I click restore and I thought all would be good. Nope. Screen is stuck in this image: http://i.imgur.com/VM2xnV6.jpg

    I let it sit for hours and still no go. I downloaded TinyUmbrella and "Fix recovery" didn't work. I tried Redsn0w and no go. Phone is out of warranty and I could use some help on how to get this damn phone out of this recovery mode hell.

    Thank you

    Could be a hardware problem, an easier test would be try the DFU on another PC.

    This is not good. I still have my 5S too. What will you do? Will you buy a 6/6+?

    How much would it cost to take it to a genius at Apple do you think?
