You need to put it into DFU mode and restore it. DFU mode will work, if you don't get in to DFU mode the first time just keep trying. DFU mode will always work unless your device has a hardware problem.

For future reference never click erase all data on a jail broken iPhone. You have to restore through iTunes when your phone is jailbroken.

Unless the device is running iOS 5 or higher. Then it just gets stuck at the Apple logo. A force restart later and everything is back.

Happy to know that your problem is solved. “Intell” is right don't ever “Erase all data” function in jailbrek iPhone, just restore it through iTunes.
