So today, my p.o.s. iPhone 7 Plus **** the bed, randomly shut off today while I was at work and has been caught in a bootloop. For those that don't know what at means, basically my iPhone tries to turn on, but never get's past the Apple Logo.
My phone isn't jailbroken and I believe it's got the latest iOS 11.2.2 as I typically update as they release. I've tried hard reboots. I've booted it in recovery mode and connected it to iTunes tried the "Update" route, but it ends up failing. I've manually gone back and installed 11.2, which runs through fine, get's to where I enter my pass code and then the recovery process, but then get's caught back in a bootloop when it reboots. I'm now trying the "Update" route again since it's not got an older iOS on it, to see if that solves it, I just got to the part that I have to enter my pass code and then it loads everything.
However, if it doesn't work and I'm not 100% sure when the last time I backed up my iPhone, anyone know of any good, preferably free or cheap software that are capable of backing up my phone while it's in recovery mode?
