My girlfriend smashed her iPhone screen. Being technically competent and after looking at YouTube videos of how to fix it I thought I would give it a go.
After replacing the screen and moving the front facing camera and speaker to the new screen I now get stuck on the Apple boot logo (hard resetting the phone doesn't help). I quickly then changed back to the old cracked glass screen without putting the front facing camera back and speaker and the phone booted up fine.
Therefore I presumed it was a faulty screen, so went to put the front facing camera back and speaker on the old cracked screen so that she can use it whilst a replacement arrives, but now the broken screen will only boot to the Apple logo screen.
- Is it possible that there is something with the camera or speaker preventing the phone from booting?
- Would restoring help as I can get into DFU mode?
- Is there anyway to debug this kind of issue?
