    Hey guys, new to the forum, not sure if this has already been seen, but this is a bit different to the usual recovery mode loop... Here is a picture of the phone (excuse the screen etc. just a rough phone I got given)


    So basically, because the power button is broken & I was trying to jailbreak it, I did the thing that redsn0w allows, where it rebuilds the IPSW to enter DFU mode so you can jailbreak it, unfortunately, it instantly rebooted itself and went into recovery mode, but instead of prompting for you to recover it, it decided to go straight to the screen it does where it rebuilds it, and froze, now it won't recognize itself on itunes, when I plug it in, it notifies me something has been plugged in by the sound, but isn't recognized as anything. So please can someone help me?! It's not exactly a do-or-die situation, but it is annoying, as I was planning on using it as my phone for work!

    Thanks, and sorry for entering the forums on a negative! Looks like a great forum with useful people!

    Have you tried exiting the loop using TinyUmbrella utility.??
