    Would I have a brick here?

    Updated via OTA. Phone kept boot looping. Went to iTunes put it in restore mode to restore.

    It verifies restore and reboots the phone and it shows the Apple Logo with the small loading bar like its restoring (does not move) while iTunes says verifying restore. Then it stops, iPhone reboots back into the mode where it shows iTunes and the lighting cable, and iTunes shows error 9. I've tried 3 different USB ports both USB 2.0 and 3.0 and no go.. Did this update hard brick my device?

    Closet Apple Store is just over an hour away in a town I hate driving in. I'd rather drive the 3 hours out of state to another state lol (as long as they have stock for replacements.)

    But any suggestions for this?
