DFU Mode

Plug it into your USB cable and then power down.

Once it is turned off-press and hold power button and home button at the same time for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, release the power button but hold the home button for another 10 seconds.

The phone will then go into restore mode and itunes will ask you to restore.

Hopefully you have a current back up

Also-make sure and HOLD THE 2 BUTTONS FOR A FULL 10 SECONDS or it won't work. After you release the power button, you can just hold the home button until DFU starts.
