    Well my iphone memory is corrupted due to me forgetting all about the nature of the iphone (is a basically a hard drive). I had one of those phone cases with the magnet that helps to close the lid and so i kept my iphone in it, but not to long after i found that my iphone got like really hot a couple days after and told me i had to restore my iphone... so i restored it thinking it was just a software issue and put it right back into the case again which caused it to shut down the next day. I then tried to turn it on but it kept sticking at the loading screen then it would restart and stick again. I tried restoring using all methods possible but after the firmware is extracted the iphone would just give me various errors. One time i actually got the firmware restored but the loading screen situation occurred once more.
    Have anyone came across a situation similar or think they have any bright ideas that i may try?

    This really doesn't make sense to me. What does the iPhone being a hard drive, getting really hot and a magnet have to do with a software issue? Can you please clarify your question.

    ok son .. read slowly

    Hard Drives and Magnets don't go together ... why? Google

    When the magnet in the phone case, clashed with the iphones hard drive it caused the memory to become corrupt, during that process the iphone became really heated ... i said i "thought" it was a software issue until i figured out that it was the magnet in my case that allowed the iphone to crash.
    Now if you don't understand that then....gl with life

    No need to be snarky.
    This is true hard drives can be affected by magnets. However, iPhones don't have hard drives in them. Good try though. Magnets won't affect the data.

    Cool. So not only are you incorrect (SSDs aren't affected by magnetism), you're also an ass about it.

    Fair enough. In that case, I suppose you'll have no problem finding the answers yourself.

    Exactly why I didn't understand the question and case maunfactuers aren't idiots, they know the iPhone has SSD so they can put magnets on the cases. This would also be considered a hardware issue that affected the software but was not caused by it. And please don't be an ****** to other posters including myself. There is no need to be rude to someone who is trying to solve your problem. Like ppc750fx said, it seems like you know enough to solve your own problem. If you would like to have your problem solved, I suggest you be grateful that someone is trying to help you.
