    Plug it into iTunes and then press and hold both buttons for what will seem like ages and iTunes will eventually cone up saying it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Then simply restore it.

    Put the iPhone in DFU mode (google it) and connect to iTunes. You need to restore the software.
