    Last night my iphone ran out of power and I charged it this morning. When I power it up, the screen lights up, but stays blank.

    I cannot recover via blackra1n.exe. It just hangs, stating "entering recovery".

    What methods of recovery do I have?

    Did that. Doesn't work, still had an illuminated dark blank screen.

    At this point, now the screen will not illuminate and windows sees the device as a usb device, but does not know its an iphone anymore. :rolleyes:

    You might have to restore it.
    If you got your SHSH files saved thru cydia restore using 3.1.2

    How do I go about doing that if the "usb device is not recognized"?

    In other words, iTunes doesn't see it.....

    DFU mode worked. I was able to get the Apple Logo, then went into device manger, scanned for new hardware and it recognized the phone with no issues.

    Thanks for the help buddy! :D
