    Well, My iPhone 4 is stuck on the Apple logo and when plugged in no iTunes recognizes it. I tried the iMac, the PC, and now I'm trying my Acer Laptop. When I plugged in my iPhone my laptop recognized it, but it is not showing up on the sidebar. What do I do now?

    ... Yes. I have an apple genius appointment tomorrow, and am getting a replacement so I thought I would try to jailbreak it right quick to see what it's like because i never jailbroke anything till yesterday and it went successfully, but then when I tried to restore it it said that this couldn't be done because of something, there wasn't any errors code or anything, after that I panicked and remote wiped it and now no computer will recognize it, not even my laptop any more and it just shows the apple logo on the screen! Please help! Do you think I will still be able to get a replacement as I was originally going to apple because my backplate clicks, it over heats, and there's a scratch on the screen!?

    4.2.1 is a tethered jailbreak on the iPhone 4. So, every time the iPhone reboots you need to run redsn0w in tethered mode to turn it back on.

    There is no need to get it replaced, the same thing will just happen again.
