    Okay, so I am selling my iPhone 4 for an 4S I just bought (the 4S sucked through, waste of $800). I used the 'Reset all content and settings' that returns it to factory state, but now I see an apple logo with a empty white bar. I waited for 30 mins without anything happening.

    Problem is, no matter what I press the iPhone doesn't turn off. I tried holding the top and home buttons, I tried instructions to enter DFU mode, no dice. iTunes will not recognize it.

    Help?

    sigh....

    it isn't bricked

    you cant use reset all settings on a JB foon

    you'll have to get it into DFU and restore.
    Hold power and home until the screen turns off, count 3 seconds and than release power while keep home pressed another 10 seconds

    screen should remain black when you release home, you're in DFU

    restore through itunes.

    If you needed unlock be sure to make a custom firmware file to keep your BB

    AND READ UP
