    Hook it up back to iTunes. Hold down the power and home buttons until the iPhone turns back on. When you see the Apple come on let go of the power and keep holding the home button.

    Use Tinyumbrella (google it) to kick it from the Recovery mode.


    Put it in DFU Mode and do the restore from the beginning.
