5s Blue Screen of Death Bootloop
The phone is stuck in an apple logo boot loop with Blue screen of death cutting it off.
I can break the boot loop if I leave the battery disconnected for some time, once I plug the battery back in and let it boot up it boots up fine.
Then if I switch off the phone and try to turn it on again it's stuck in the BSOD boot loop.
Then again to get it working I have to disconnect the battery again and do the above.
What I've checked:
- Checked screw holes for long screw damage, no damage visible there
- Tried booting with front camera, rear camera, charging port, antennas unplugged
- Tried booting via DC Bench power supply adapter
What I am going to do:
- Replace tristar charging chip (U2)
Should I try anything else first before doing so?
