Hi, I have a iPhone 3gs 16gb black. it had water damage so I fixed it in some alcohol, and dried. Found the screen had gone for life, including home button and LCD, but iPhone will restore to ios6 no errors any time, after the completion message, it reboots, I assume cause I can't see anything on the screen, and goes back into recovery mode? I usually have the screen disconnected from the iPhone, I really good battery in, and all connectors on, but not all screws in as it doesnt need it as I'm testing. I can't kick outta recovery using redsn0w as The home button doesn't work. Also can't in Tiny Umbrella or Recboot, just keeps trying but straight back into recovery? Any help? Thanks for your time :)
