    I recently installed a weather lockscreen app I got off macthemes. I went to edit the config file, not thinking I used word to edit it. I think by using word it change some the format of the code. After uploading it to my phone and testing the lockscreen out my springboard crashed (blackscreen w/ the springboard loading and loading). So I hold home and power and turn my phone off. Now when I try to turn the phone on I'm stuck @ the pineapple logo.

    Is there anyway to get my phone back on w/o restoring everything and rejailbreaking? If I need to restore everything how do I do it? I'm stuck on the boot screen so not sure how to get into DFU mode. Thanks in advance... :confused:

    DFU Mode
    Or try holding the home and lock buttons until the phone turns off and then do it again to turn it on.

    Good luck with that, I have tried it many times when I was in your situation, and I never got it to work, the iphone never showed up in CyberDuck..
