    Ok, i have a problem...

    iphone 4s, working ok until owner changed broken screen. Since then phone can not connect to network, wifi works, but imei is not shown in settings and modem firmware is empty.I guess baseband is broken, maybe that small baseband chip that powers it ?

    Iphone could be used for wifi surfing etc but no phone calls

    Then i tried to restore it and it gave me 3094 error so i tried duf mode restore and it stucks always on apple logo and progress bar at cca 99% while restoring firmware.

    Now it wont even boot, just lights up apple logo for few sec and then turns black.

    How can i restore it? Ios 8,1 is on it and i wonder if there is any custom software which alows restore of ipsw withot flashing baseband , maybe then restore will go to the end then?

    Thanks a lot

    The device may have had more wrong with it than a bad screen... I'd refer to qualified service personnel.

    Ok, i managed to get this fixed

    I restored iphone with predownloaded ipsw 8.1.2 (using shift+restore) and it gave me error 3 - write verify fail. It took 20 minutes before error showed, it was stuck on apple logo and progress bar up to 99%

    so i found someones advice to put the phone in the freezer for 30 minutes.

    i was thinking that it is BS but more i read about that more it made sense. Nand memory writtes better when cold, if overheated it fails

    I took iphone, wrapped it in paper towell and took a freezer bag, normal plastik bag for freezing food and put it in and left it in freezer for 30 minutes

    when it came out i imidiately pluged in cable and restored it (not from dfu) and it went great - fast and succesfull

    Not everything works

    i even have service once again, phone works great

    Clearly the device has issues... I think you're fortunate to get out of it what you have...
