    Try Semi-Restore. If iTunes isn't recognizing the device you may have another issue. You can try putting the device in safe mode then see if iTunes can see it.

    Try another lightning cable, if you have not done so already.

    When you say you are trying to unjailbreak, are you trying to restore to the same version of iOS (so you can jailbreak again) or are you simply trying to remove your jailbreak and restore to the latest version of iOS?

    The fact that you mention Impactor tells me you are trying to restore to the same version of iOS, but you also mention iTunes.

    Depending on what you are trying to do it influences our suggestions in helping you.

    Lastly, what kind of computer are using using (Mac or PC) with what version of OS and what version of iTunes?

    I'm trying to just remove JB, im not going to re-jailbreak it and will probably update to latest firmware, any method of un jailbreaking will be great even if i lose all my information on my phone.

    I have both a Windows 8.1 pc using latest itunes and a mac using Yosemite with the latest itunes update.

    Have you tried another computer?? Or if that is not possible, an alternate USB port? ( may years ago, I had an HP computer, and tehtered a Sanyo 4500 for internet, but it would not work in the USB ports on the right side of the laptop, only on the ones on the left..I never bothered to figure out why..)

    Good to hear. DFU would have been my next suggestion based on your previous answer.

    No prob! Once you try everything else it becomes the only way to fix things.

    Just to let you know, Semi-restore does not remove the jailbreak. Unlike Cydia Impactor, it restores your iPhone yet maintains the jailbreak and Cydia.
