    My iPhone won't turn on n charge. I search on google and read more than 200 article and try all the way but didn't turn on iPhone. I can connect to the iPhone in DFU mode and iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Popup the message You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes.

    If I click on this, it warns me that factory settings will be restored and that data will be lost. I don't want to lose my data. I didn't have backup.

    I go to apple showroom the guy told me have hardware problem.

    If i restore the iPhone in recovery mode not sure can be restored successfully without any problems and iPhone turn on but the apple guy told me is hardware problem if hardware problem then how to restore iPhone in recover mode?

    I take the iPhone in phone market in hong kong. There is so many repair mobile shop can easy to change anything in any mobile. i go to many shops after they checking the iPhone all they say can't repair. some say CPU or motherboard or logic board.

    Let's start discussion.


    1. I saw on video in china they can take out very easy memory chip from iPhone.


    Question :

    A. After take out the memory chip from my iPhone they can backup to my computer?

    B. Can backup to my account iCloud Drive?

    C. They can restore my data to new iPhone?

    D. Is possible without take it out memory chip can backup to my computer or iCloud Drive they can do this ?

    E. VERY IMPORTANT: If they can back up on their PC then they can restore the data to any iPhone by copy serial number for hacking ?

    Some people saying:

    No they cannot transfer data from the chip.

    They just do a backup on their PC for you, that's it.

    They just copy serial number onto new chip, then restore iphone backup

    2. Buy second hand iPhone then ask them take it out my iPhone memory chip and put in second hand phone.

    Question: After they change the memory chip then second phone show all the apps and my data? If iPhone work this way then also can backup on iCloud Drive?

    3. If have Logic Board problem then i change the logic board then my data memory chip put on my logic board.


    A. Where i can buy Logic Board iPhone 6 plus 64 Gb ?

    B. iPhone show all the apps and my data ?

    C. Can backup to my iCloud Drive ?

    Someone saying: he pointed out that it's a small ic chip on the logic board are common to blow on these and will stop ur iPhone from powering on or even charging he did the repair today and walla it's back working I honestly thought the phone had it but 100% this is the issue its caused by overcharging.

    Questions: Which ic chip on the logic board?

    I download many account apps where i save the data because that apps didnt have backup service. I have get back data.

    If any other option available please share here to help others.

    I already spend 15 days on searching and read article and wasting my time. Hope soon can find the way to recover the data.

    Thanks very much

    Did you check on iCloud.com on a computer to see if there was a back up? Auto back up is on by default. So if your phone was asleep and plugged in, it may have backed up without you knowing. Did you turn auto back up off? If not, it wouldn't hurt to look on iCloud.com and see if anything is there.

    That's as bad as u can get. It's not possible to recover data, and i wouldn't trust a Chinese company, even if it was my only copy, as someone else would now have that data as well..

    if u don't have it on iCloud, then u'r pretty much out of luck.... Perhaps this could be a good lesson in future to backup important data.
