I had a very similar problem with my old iPhone 5. Long story short: I had a Black 16GB iPhone 4S, the screen got cracked and the Wifi Chip broke (Under settings the Wifi option was greyed out). I payed $60 for an issuance replacement by AT&T (Asurion). Each "refurbished" iPhone 4S they sent me had problems (they sent me 5 iPhone 4S's each one had a problem), so they felt bad and sent me a Space Grey iPhone 5 64GB. Unfortunately for me I quickly discovered there was a battery problem, and I ignored it due to the fact that I was given a great upgrade. It came to the point where it was charged at 100% and would it last about 2 hours maybe less. So, I replaced the battery with one from iFixiT, and after replacing it the phone wouldn't charge or power on, even after putting the old battery back in. Anyways, I called AT&T one last time and they said they were so sorry for the trouble, and to show their graditude they sent me a brand new Space Grey iPhone 5S 32GB (to ensure I wouldn't have any more problems cause its new). Ok it's a rather "long" story Lol.
ok so i let it sit charging and now its on but its stuck in recovery mode. it restores and then just says its in recovery and that I need to restore it and it continues in that cycle...
Did you try to place it in DFU mode, then restore?
Giovanni. Did you pry the battery out between the battery and the logic board or between the battery and the housing?
