    i have an iphone 4 and it's jailbroken with cydia for tmobile, 4.01.10; 4.3.5
    i tried to reset all settings in order to get rid of all of my contacts/pictures/and music and now it's stuck on the screen where it's a black screen with a little white "processing" icon or whatever it is that is showing that it's in process. it has stayed like this for over an hour now and i'm sure there's something wrong with it. holding the power and home button down doesn't do anything, plugging it into itunes doesn't do anything--it doesnt even recognize the device! What do i do?!!!

    please help!

    You can't use reset all settings on JB phone.

    You have to restore, put phone in DFU and ALT-(mac) or SHIFT-(win) restore in itunes

    How many times a day do we have to say you cannot do an erase all content on a JB device.
    It will always get stuck like that.
    Now you gotta be very carefull what you do and if you restore and to what firmware cause you might lose your iphone 4 unlock and wont be able to use it on Tmobile any more.
    You're using a gevey sim correct?
