    Hi guys,

    I need help restoring my jailbroken iphone 4 currently on 6.1.3.
    My problem is its restarting to the apple logo every 10 to 15 seconds, wont go into dfu mode and when i try to go into dfu mode it enters recovery mode instead. I had SAM prefs loaded on there to unlock with tmobile(i dont know if this is the problem). Any help is much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Is your device jailbroken? If so with what software? All I can recommend is putting the device into recoverymode and re-jailbreaking. You should be able to restore from recoverymode anyway though...

    Then try again, make sure USB is connected. When you end up in recovery your timing is off
    Hold home+power until the phone turns off
    Count 3 more sec
    Release power while holding home for another 10 seconds.

    The SAM unlock route has long since closed, it can only be used for it's original purpose of deactivating/reactivating and push reset.

    Rejailbreaking with redsn0w required DFU, can't be done in recovery

    I believe there is an option on redsn0w to re-install cydia, this requires the device to be in recoverymode and should therefore work.

    Incorrect
    It requires DFU it use the limera1n exploit.

    Besides that it is ill adviced too re-jailbreak.
    Only use that as a last resort.

    Also re-installing Cydia does not fix his problem.
    It is either a bad tweak or a hardware failure.
