    so, jailbroke iphone 6plus. after installing tweek, got stuck on apple logo and would not boot into safe mode. tried restore using itunes. installed as normal. got to lock screen and it didnt go back to stock. it looks like it tried to restore from backup, because my it used my old wallpaper and asked for password.

    Now after I plugged in my password, it goes to my home screen and nothing is there. I can double click home button and it shows last apps that were opened. when I click them it goes into a reboot.

    As I try to restore, now it tells me to turn off Find my Phone. But I cant since my home screen is completely blank except for my wallpaper. it does show wi-fi, verizon signal, time, battery level ect on the top of the screen though.

    when I try to sync through itunes, sync starts, then ends really fast

    Need help!

    Why do people keep using the word bricked for something that isn't brick instead of doing a system restore from backup just do a system restore from an IPWS

    you didnt read my post. the home screen is completely blank. no icons, no settings, nada.... nothing. Like your end screen you have no apps in. So I cant get into settings to turn Find My Phone off.

    would not go into DFU.

    Got it fixed. Went into Icloud from my macbook and remotely wiped it.

    Once again that does not mean that is bricked in fact by my count it's near impossible to bring Linux or UNIX for that matter

    Have you tried pulling down from the home screen to get to spotlight to open settings?

    Also, if the phone is using any of the radios, you should be able to turn off Find My iPhone through iCloud on the Web.
