    Hi, i recently jailbroke my phone and i wasnt very satisfied with the result so i set about restoring my iphone through the settings > General > reset method. My iphone then proceeded to restart it self and reboot at which time it froze and became completely lifeless so i did a quick reboot (holding the home and lock button for several seconds hoping it might fix it...... and it didnt) and now hasnt started for 2 days :-(

    Can someone please shed some advice on how i can fix this problem as the phone will load up as far as the apple symbol and then completely freezes before going to the login screen so i am unable to use my iphone full stop and its driving me crazy :mad:

    If anyone has had any similar problems or has any tips on how to get it going again it would be very much appreciated :)

    Restore it in iTunes. Resetting the phone in Settings will not remove the jailbreak (for future reference).

    Thanks for the hep but when i connect my phone to itunes, itunes does not recognise my phone so i cant access it that way to restore it :-(

    When i connect my iod shuffle it appears in itunes so i know it's definately the phone playing up and not my laptop:rolleyes:

    Any ideas what to try next?!?!?:(

    Click this link for instructions on how to put the phone into DFU mode, iTunes will then recognize and let you restore the phone.
