Put the phone into DFU mode and restore it.

Watch this clip to see how: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofpinyGlQ8I

You have a tethered jailbreak. Plug it into iTunes.

I think he means plug it into the computer, then run blackra1n again to push the phone bootup process forward. iTunes isn't going to boot your tethered-jailbroken iPhone for you.

Well, i'm a little irritated listing everything for someone who jailbroke their 3GS, but obviously didn't read all about it before doing it.

iphone screen blank after jailbreak

I jailbroke my iphone 3gs today and at first it was working fine. about 4 hours later, my iphone just shut off and hasn't been able to turn it on since. I've tried everything, the hard reset, the DFU and it hasn't responded to anything. The screen just remains black. Any suggestions?
