Iphone 3gs wouldnt start


My Iphone 3gs battery drained out and now it wouldn't go on pass the apple logo.

When its charging or plugged into the pc, First you see the Apple logo. After a couple of minutes the screen will go off, then showing the red empty battery icon. And after a short while the Apple logo is back on. It keeps repeating this logo/battery loop.

When its not plugged in ans I try to turn it on, just the red empty battery icon with a plug in sign is shown.

It's not possible to go into DFU mode or recovery mode. I tried different USB cables, a power adapter, the USB port. It does not matter.

Would I still be able to safe my data(pics backup) after anything I do with it now?

The iPhone 3GS is unlocked & jailbroken (iOS 4.3.3)

Thanks in advance !
