1) Try punctuation.
2) You probably won't get much help here with a "jailbreaked" phone.

Google DFU restore, and then do that.

Never try to update the software from a jailbroken phone, only do it through iTunes. Also, updating your software updates it to the latest version, which is now for your phone 6.1.3, which you cannot jailbreak.

At this point do a DFU restore. You should be fine, but you will no longer be able to jailbreak your phone.
