Question about Apple iPhone 3G Black Smartphone
My housing was completely busted so I had to replace it. I know how to take apart the iphone so don't think I don't know. After I replaced the housing, there was something wrong with the home button so i decide to fix it. After fixing it the iphone started to not work even when connecting to the computer. I waited 30 min for the iPhone to charge and it still doesn't seem to want to recognize that the iphone is connected nor charge but for some reason it the battery started to get too HOT even though my firmware is still 2.2 or whatever the firmware before 3.0 is. I'm thinking that the battery is faulty and I need to buy a replacement so I bought a new one (well its just been dispatched). Honestly I don't know if it is the battery fault or the iPhone logic board (which I highly doubt because I never damaged it in any way and carefully reconnected everything together and obviously it worked after reassemble it but after the home button problem it stopped working).
I wanted to know, if you remove the battery and connect it to the computer, would the the iPhone respond? or it wouldn't recognize it? if it doesn't recognize it then I'm sure that the battery connector is somewhat faulty and its making the usb give more power to the battery than it should (?) so im guessing that replacing the battery will by my solution but I'm not so sure since there a chance that my logic may be damaged. What are you guy opinion about it. If you want to ask more question then I'm happy to answer it.
Sorry my english...
i Think thatthe battery connector is not clean or sulphated. could have an ferric micro piece in there, because is the only way for the battery rarely start to get too HOT.. micro short circuit...
by the other side, when the home butom is damage, is because dust and little crab is allowed in there...repeat sorry my english.
there are a lot of apps in Cydia that allow you to replace home button function, so you will be fine at least...

You have damaged your phone in the process
battery should not get roasting hot.
and your dock connector seems either shorted or broken also.
i would get someone who unlocks phones (market stall folk) and ask em to have a look.
this should not cost much if u act like u want to buy thier service, :-)

If you're experiencing problems with charging your device, or your phone is not recognized when you plug it in, then you may need a new charging port.

I have the same problem, After replacing the housing, phone is not recognized by the computer nor charging. But still I can open it and play games.......... I changed the dock connector but nothing happened. I replace a new logic board and it works..... So 100% the problem is about the logic board. I did the housing very carefully and am sure I broke nothing. Seems weird to me. Anyone here know how to fix the logic board based on the issue i talked about? Appreciate for any help.
