    Yesterday, I decided to restore my iphone to factory default setting . So I format my iphone through setting menu (but the battery was low) . Then i kept my phone on charge but nothing happen. I also bought a new charger and cable but my iphone won't charge. I have been trying to reset it (holding power and home button) and I have tried putting it in safe mode but no luck .

    Nothing is happening , even after charging for 2-3 hours . No logos , no indications , no buttons etc

    PLEASE HELP ME !!

    I have never had "Erase All Content" work on a jailbroken iPhone. I have always needed to restore a jailbroken iPhone.

    Sigh. I wish it were better known that you don't just do what you did to a jailbroken iPhone anymore.

    Since the iOS 7 jailbreaks this no longer works. It throws the phone into a boot loop or causes problems such as you are experiencing.

    Connect your phone to your computer and open iTunes. Shut your phone off. Put your phone in DFU mode. You will know you are in DFU mode when there is NOTHING on the screen. iTunes will detect your phone in recovery mode. Upgrade and restore at this point.

    Barring any hardware issues or any other faults (such as redirects of your hosts file) you should then be good. You are going to be on the latest version of iOS for your device however.

    OP probably wasn't aware of that tweak…as OP wasn't aware of not doing an Erase All Content and Settings on a jailbroken iPhone either.

    Download the latest redsn0w and use their DFU mode to set it to DFU. Then restore using iTunes.

    Why?

    What's wrong with normal DFU mode?

    Are you sure you are doing it right. Google it and make sure you're doing it right. What way exactly are you trying to do it?

    Yes I am doing it right! Like first hold powe button for 3 seconds then without releasing it press home button for 10 seconds and then release power button but press home button for 15 secs.

    Plug the phone into your computer and open iTunes. Hold power and home at the same time for ten seconds, release the power and continue holding home until iTunes shows an alert that your phone needs to be restored (about 15 seconds).

    It is normal for the phone screen to be completely blank/black while it is in DFU. You'll know it's in DFU once iTunes gives you an alert.
