    It might be because you have the new bootrom. Someone has posted on this forum how to find that out. If the bootrom is 392.3 your ok if its 392.32 or 392.3.2 it will require a tethered jailbreak which will mean you need to run Blackra1n every time you want to turn your phone on.

    Ok, calm down... deep breaths... You didn't mess up your iPhone. You can restore all day every day and not mess up your i. Run blackra1n again. IF you turn your phone off and then back on and you get the usb deally, simply run BR again.
    Not many jb apps/themes cause a hard restart but make sure you're close to your comp when adding/taking off apps/themes.

    Sometimes Blackrain doesn't work the first time, so just keep trying.

    And don't turn off your phone, restart it or let the battery die. You'll have to jailbreak again if you do.
