Ok so ive read around here on how to fix it but all this you guys tell me isnt working. Like Hold the button tell the Screen turns black that doesnt happen it just stays the apple logo with the little circle not spinning and a couple of things on top of the Screen that look like color streaks! But the screen does turn off after like 10 min of the same screen frozen then the Apple logo again attempts to boot up and the does the loading circle a couple times then freezes!

So i Jail Broke my IPhone with jailbreakme.com

I have an Iphone 3G, 3.1.3 and i clicked reset. And this is whats happening so any suggestions?

The green streaks are caused by jailbreakme 2. They are normal. Google DFU mode, that's what you need to fix your iPhone. You are currently not doing it correctly.

Plug the iPhone into a computer, hold down both buttons for exactly 10 seconds. Then release the power button while holding down the home button for an additional 15 seconds. It should appear in iTunes as an iPhone is Recovery mode. The iPhone's screen will be black. This is DFU mode, restore your iPhone as normal.

If holding down both buttons does not force the iPhone off, then it has a hardware error.

If you hit reset in the Settings app, you must restore via DFU mode. If both buttons where working before hitting reset, then you aren't attempting to enter DFU mode properly.
