    Okay, so I was trying to uninstall an app from cydia, so I uninstalled it and it froze while trying to respring. So I did a hard reset. After that, I can't get my iphone on. I try to turn it back on by running blackra1n again, but it gets stuck at Gehot. Eventually, the screen goes black and it's back at the iTunes recovery screen. This happens every time now...I really don't want to go through recovery because I've got some stuff on my phone that I would lose... :( :( Please help

    It sucks huh? Did you try that thing where you let blackra1n try to turn it on for hours and hours? I am, and no luck :(

    Try this first. I can't really think of any other suggestions though. I'm assuming you used DFU mode too right?

    Yep I've tried DFU, but Blackra1n just keeps "waiting for device" when it dfu. Also, I don't have a mac...Is it possible to use that guide for Windows?

    Yes, but I haven't written a guide for it. You need to download iRecovery and libusb for windows and run/install them using the same commands as in the guide. Google and download iReb and try that.

    Then trying the iRecovery thing may fit it. You should try to figure out how to use it on windows. If you're having trouble figuring it out, let me know.

    Well, now I've noticed it isn't exactly looping anymore. If I run blackra1n the picture of gehot will show up, but after several minutes the screen goes black, and the apple logo shows up, and then soon I'm back at the connect to iTunes screen...Does this change anything?

    No luck with that....I'm not sure what do with the whole sudo cp thing on windows.

    Forget about that command. All that does is move the libusb.dylib ot the right spot. You need to download a libusb-****.dylib for windows and install it. After that you would open iRecovery and run the other commands (the ones that are run in iRecovery).

    Oh okay, I've already installed that...Right now I'm still hoping it will boot up after the battery dies...The battery is low, it has shown me that, but I don't think it has died yet...

    okay, I don't know if draining the battery will help you out, but you can try it. So if you have the libusb installed, can you run iRecovery now?

    Wait, you haven't tried restoring yet? What did you do in DFU mode?
