Ipad air error 9 in iTunes and error (-1) in 3u Tools

Postby ipadairflash » 23 Jun 2017 20:17

Hi, I have an Ipad Air 1st Gen that I cannot restore.
I have tried every solution I have found without success:
I have changed USB port, lightning cable and PC
I have used older and the newest version of iTunes
I have removed the screen and disconnected every bit of hardware I could before restore
I have tried to flash in DFU mode in both iTunes and 3Utools and have downloaded several versions of the firmware, 10.3.1 and 10.3.2
The iPad is recognised by iTunes, it will enter and exit recovery and DFU. It charges normally and when it comes out of recovery it is in a boot loop.
3utools sticks at 20% (Checking file system)
iTunes shows Error 9
The restore reaches the recovery screen with the progress bar but the bar never moves before it times out.
I think it is a file system error and, just guessing, a corruption during the upgrade to iOS 10 where the file system was changed.
I am pretty technically minded but this has got me stumped.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I tried to post the 3uTools log but got an error saying I could not post links. I went through the log editing everything that looked like a link but still got the error.
It's just not my day :)

Dear, if you try all the above solutions, but you still got error -1 in 3uTools. It maybe hardware issue on your device. You are suggested to get a repairman to check your device.

This could be a hardware issue. You can also try RecoveryTool Fix Recovery to solve the problem.

To this special error, you can put iPad into recovery mode and restore with iTunes if you have had a backup or use iCloud to erase iPad. If you are afraid of damaging data during the process, you may apply a professional tool like Joyoshare UltFix to work for you. It is developed two repair modes to fix various issues without losing data, such as iTunes error 9, iTunes error 4005/4013 and more. You might as well try it. Good luck!
