    Try putting it in dfu/recovery mode and try restoring
    1. connect ur iphone and open iTunes
    2. hole the power button for 2-3seconds
    3. without leaving the power button, hold the home button for 10-15 seconds
    4. leave the power button and keep holding the home button until u get a message on ur computer
    5. click restore

    i tried this and it didnt work the first time, it worked the 2nd time.

    If you just dock your phone (and get the error you have seen above in iTunes), you can then attempt a DFU restore by following those instructions.

    Google "iphone DFU restore" and you will see what the process does.
