iPhone won't start up!! Stuck on apple logo
Ok so this is what happens (ahh... bad luck comes in): Ok so I decide to sell my iPhone on ebay because I got bored of it. So I list it on ebay and someone buys it. So I go on the iPhone and click "Erase All Content and Settings" and I leave it on and go out of the house for about 2 hours. When I come back the iPhone is showing the Apple logo and there is a little circle that shows that it's loading beneath the Apple logo. So I wait for another maybe hour, and it's still there! So I hold the Home button and the Sleep button to turn it off, I turn it on and it's still the same. So I decide to restore it by putting the phone into Recovery mode where it shows the iTunes and the USB cord, so I connect it to the computer, but the computer doesn't recognize it!
So I tried almost everything. I updated my computer with the windows updates, I updated and reinstalled itunes about 3 times. I even changed the battery on the iPhone!!!! I had a spare one....
Please if you have ANY suggestions on what to do please tell me! I am completely out of ideas. It's definitely not the USB cord because if it didn't work I wouldn't be able to put the phone into Recovery mode.
Edit: btw I have the 2G 4GB version iPhone and I am using a Windows XP computer. But I also tried it on my mom's Windows Vista laptop.

How do I hard reset it?
It was jailbroken with firmware 2.1. How can I restore it if my computer doesn't recognize it? Also how do I put it into DFU mode?
I did DFU mode but it doesn't go into it because the computer doesn't recognize the iPhone...

I had exactly the same problem, becuase mine was also jailbroken.
Its something to do with Cydia or something.....
And yeah, you can fix it yourself.
Just put it into DRU mode, my PC recognised the phone and i clicked on restore, it downloaded the firmware again about 225MB but after that my phone booted again!
I had to jailbrake it again........
Dont worry, youll get it sorted:
