    My iPhone is stuck on the boot screen. After about 5 minuter, a pinwheel appears below the apple. A few minutes later, the phone restarts and the apple appears again. I plugged it in to my computer and it is recognized. I am even able to view the camera roll on my computer. iPhone 3GS jailbroken fw 3.12. What do I need to do? If I have to restore the phone, will it still be jailbroken?

    You have a tethered jailbreak. Just start blackra1n again and it'll boot.

    download it and run it while the phone is plugged in your computer thru usb.

    Try to restore it in DFU mode then.
