    My host file has got to be completely screwed. I have tried everything. I cannot pay for a registry cleaner.

    My iPhone had a bad battery so I took it out. When playing with the connector strip on the battery while it was plugged my phone would boot up. Well I threw the battery away because the little connector strip broke. Now without a battery it will just boot loop. So I tried putting it into dfu mode while plugged and and restoring 5.1.1. I get error 1394. I fixed the host file with 10 different tutorials on YouTube and I still get the error. If I just put it into recovery and try to restore and update it gives error 21. Can anyone help? I'm new to the iPhone but not messing with phones.

    You have no battery in it? You can't do anything, without a battery. You'll need a replacement, or that's all it'll keep doing.

    I've seen people on youtube do this. Is this what the iPhones do without a battery in it?
