    ok guys I think I may have really messed up here.

    I was in the process of sorting a problem that 'SwapTunes' caused with my iTunes libraries. I was using SSH and was looking at the outermost level of my iPhones folder hierarchy. I accidentally clicked and dragged the 'user' folder at the bottom of the list. Although I tried to drag it back to its original position before releasing the mouse button, Cyberduck seemed to put it somewhere and an alias to 'user' was created. As I am not too familiar with the iPhone folders I wasn't sure where it had gone. Cyberduck also doesn't have an undo function!!! Anyway for some reason I hoped it wouldn't be serious and disconnected SSH. Big mistake. I tried to launch calender on the iphone and it crashed and now the iphone will not boot to springboard. It just gets into a state of perpetual reboot (all I see is the Pwnage pineapple logo. I tried putting it into restore mode with no luck. If I could get into restore mode or SSH again I could try to sort the problem.

    I am clueless at the moment. Really hope someone can help me here.
    Thanks

    No problem. :)

    The downside is that you're definitely going to lose all your Jailbreak mods. But you should be able to restore everything else, and in the end, I guess, you'll have a working phone again. :eek:

    uh oh....
    After everything seemed to go smoothly - the firmware seemed to go on fine and I managed to restore to a few days ago. Upon reboot I just get the Pineapple and two vibrates every few seconds. Still not booting to springboard...
    Maybe try not restoring?...
