    Hi guys

    So I accidentally added a whole bunch of contacts on my iPhone, that weren't mine. So I just decided to do the "erase all settings and data"

    So I did it, and then it froze in the process? Now everytime I try to turn it on, it won't boot, and it's stuck at the silver apple logo.

    I have tried the Sleep/wake button + Home button, doesn't help, but I use it for turning the iPhone off.

    I tried to get it recognized in iTunes by turning it completely off, then holdning Home-button while connecting the USB. I worked, but now Apple won't sign any of my firmwares, So I can't restore?

    Please, I REALLY need help !

    Best Regards

    If you aren't interested in unlocking or anything like that, just put the phone in DFU mode and restore the stock firmware. If you are trying to preserve an unlock, you'll probably have to use PwnageTool to install a custom firmware. Just search for DFU mode to figure out how to put your phone in it.
