    this is why you don't mess with your phone if you're not comfortable with what you're doing...

    our iPhone seems to be stuck on restore (at least hope it does).. Try connecting your phone to iTunes.. Does it detect it?? If yes, then restore it to the original firmware n try owning again using a different machine.. Don't know if you did it already but I personally prefer using mac to pwn..

    1. Have iTunes open
    2. Have iPhone connected and detected by iTunes
    3. Download the firmware you like to restore to your iPhone (Google it)
    3. Hold, i think, alt (or apple or ctrl) and click Restore to select the firmware you downloaded from step3.

    Congrats, you have no idea what you're doing.

    Follow the Pwnage instructions again and do it through DFU. That'll solve this problem.
