    Hello I sold an Iphone 4 so I decided to delete all contents and settings. I did not realize that this does not work if the phone is jailbroken. So now the phone is stuck with the apple logo on the screen. It has been this way for 36 hours now. I tried to hook it up to Itunes but my coumputer did not recognize it. What can I do Please help!

    Did you enter DFU mode? 36 hours seems like a gross exaggeration to leave something just hanging.

    I didn't think anything of it. How do I enter DFU mode?

    Try this article. I believe it is tailored to the iPhone 4 because that is what I searched for.

    How did you jailbreak if you don't even know how to get into DFU mode?

    1. Hold the home and power buttons simultaneously until it powers off. It will immediately power itself back on because it's in a loop.

    2. Immediately after it powers back on and the apple shows up hold down Home and Power until the screen goes black.

    3. About 2 seconds after it goes black release the power button but keep holding the home button for another 10 count.

    That's not "exactly" how you would normally do it, but in a boot loop that's the easiest way.
