    Hook it up to your computer and enter dfu mode...see if it recognizes it then. If it does you should be able to restore.

    Step 1. Turn off your iPhone.

    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.

    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.

    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode.
