Edited for Summary - iPhone 5 w/ 7.04 and the latest evasion JB, been JB'd for about a week and a half - Tweaks 1. flux 2. Activator 3. CControls Problem: When the phone fully discharged I plugged the phone into my charger. The phone proceeded to attempt to boot right away but loops. Briefly displays the Apple logo, then to black screen, then logo again. When unplugging the device it goes black and does not loop. Pressing the power button does not display the low power indicator nor does the device attempt to boot. Only when the device is plugged into a power source does it loop. I feel it's a software issue. Attempt to resolve: 1. DFU mode. My Macbook will not recognize the phone in iTunes as being in recovery. A windows machine does and goes into iPhone Recovery Mode. However when it goes to "waiting for iphone" the iPhone again starts to loop and the Windows machine fails to restore it. I've gotten two separate errors, 4005 and 4014 2. Start in Safe Mode (holding volume up). Unresponsive. 3. Plugged into different power sources and different cabling I believe the battery is so completely discharged, and the phone isn't allowing it to build up a charge and as it tries to boot continues to discharge itself (as when I press and hold power it doesn't display the low indicator screen). I am out of ideas. I could perhaps replace the battery as they come with some charge from the factory, enough to get into the phone and reset it.
