    Im very sorry for this, i now there are numerous posts about this issue but I havent read one that fits my problem. Ok there are 4 problems with my phone...1. its stuck on apple logo with wheel timer 2. I try dfu mode but it does nothing, it doesnt even shut down, (Shows no sign of dfu). 3.I cant shut my iphone off by pressing sleep/wake button or sleep/wake + home button. 4. My pc wont recognize it and itunes wont either..

    What im thinking now is that my phone is bricked??? 0.o Ive read other posts that relate to my problem, but most people CAN get into DFU mode, but are scared of loosing pics,music, etc... I really dont care what i lose from my phone I just want my phone back!

    Thanks in advance.

    Out of curiosity, was your iphone JB/unlocked using blackra1n? what caused it to go into reboot loop?

    I have the same issue and it was because I went to reset the network settings since my wifi stopped working.

    What i suggest is to let the battery drain. When you are about to charge it, plug it into the computer. This should charge it normally and make the computer recognize it

    Im not sure what was used to jailbreak my phone, and to be honest I really dont know what version it was on. I hope thats not a big problem,
