  • You get no image from the screen
  • You plug into computer and iTunes/3U tools detects it in DFU mode
  • If you try to Update or Restore, you get these results:
    • iTunes Error Code: Error 4014
    • 3u Tools Easy Flash: Fails at 19%



  • Error 4014 is usually "NAND not detected".


  • Check the caps around NAND to see if they're shorted.
    • If there's a short, remove the shorted cap and try to boot the phone up.
  • If no short, pull the NAND and connect it to the JC P13 NAND programmer and see if it's readable
    • You can refer to this video for how to use the P11F Programmer:
    • If it doesn't read, the NAND is dead and needs to be replaced
    • If it does read a NAND, then you can reball NAND and install it again. The phone should boot right up.
