    Ok so recently I've bought the Iphone of a friend, it's an Iphone 4, 16Gb..

    I didn't have no SIM card because he kept it (idk why) so I activated it.. worked fine.. I decided to jailbreak it also and install things with cydia.. nothing much, only winterboard, installous and w/e..

    BUT I decided to reset the Iphone, reset completly all the settings and memory, complete reset! Reset is done, the red indicator for recharge appears..

    Ok so I recharge it, the grey apple logo appears.. the loading circle appears.. kind of laggy turning.. I'm waiting...... Goes back to the red recharge indicator! Then apple logo... non-stop! :mad:

    It won't open! It always does that! I tried doing the power / home thing, it only restarted.. Ans since its not configurated with Itunes because I reset it, I can't restore it...

    Please help me!! It suuuuuucks I paid my birthday money for this IPhone! :mad:

    Thank you..

    You have to put it in to DFU mode (Google it) then iTunes will see it and allow you to restore it.

    When i put it in DFU mode it just restarts, Itunes pops-up but doesn't recongnize my Iphone... A little window of Itunes says : Itunes did not recognize this Iphone, you should try to restore it..

    DFU mode does work. Most likely you are not getting into DFU at all or correctly.
