Can I restore my jailbroken iphone to get it relocked without bricking it in itunes?

I've never once heard of a bricked iPhone or iPod touch since I started jailbreaking back in 2007. Sure, people freak out sometimes and think they've bricked their device, but it always turns out to not be bricked after all.
Exactly. It's darn near impossible to "brick" an iPhone.
started the restore over an hour ago on my phone to erase and restore back to stock and I keep getting the apple logo with a little circle it goes away and comes back its been over an hour how long does it take to reset?
Did you restore through itunes or through your phone? Itunes is MUCH quicker.
I had a similar problem when I was first attempting to jailbreak my 3G on OS 2.2.1--my mistake but I was in the same loop you're in now. You need to restore from DFU. Hold power and home button for 10 seconds, then release power button while continuing to hold home button. If your connected to your computer with iTunes open you get a pop-up in iTunes detecting an iPhone in recovery modeand it will instruct you to restore. If you're not connected to your computer, I believe you'll get the connect to iTunes message on the front of your phone. Just connect and restore through iTunes.
Here's a link to a good tutorial if needed: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1034
I thought that I had bricked my phone when I attemped to upgrade to 3.0. I was upgrading from 2.2.0, not the most recent firmware, so I think that combined with being jailbroke I had some problems. I tried to right click restore to 3.0 in itunes and it got stuck on the steve jobs cartoon boot image, then I tried in DFU mode 4 - 5 times to no avail. Then I tried to restore to 3.0 on my MBP and everything went smooth. There were a few minutes where I couldn't even turn my phone on though and that had me worried.
