Antwoord op "Why is iPhone 5 stuck on "searching..."?"I too had the same problem. Here's what I did. The Problem may be also because of constant updating of the firmware. First download a software called '3Utools' at 'www.3u.com' . Meanwhile it gets downloaded, make sure you backup all your data that is on your phone either at itunes or icloud. Before you start Flashing your phone go to ~ Settings>General >About > and from there see the version of the ios that has been installed on your phone. Then, *Install 3Utools. *Go to firmware and download the previous version of the ios for the version that has been installed (i.e : If you had ios 10.2.3 recently ,download ios 10.2.2 or 10.2.1). *First restore your phone(Full Restore). *Connect your phone to PC. *Then put ypur iphone yo recovery mode (http://www.iclarified.com/367/how-to-put-an-iphone-into-recovery-mode). (1) Then Install the firmware that has been downloaded. The problem will be solved. Thank you! Hashan.
