    What did you do? You can use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of restore mode now without a restore and you'll still have your jailbreak.

    i have no idea! i went to pick my ip4 up and it had powered off i thought so i held the power button down to turn it back on and it came up with this screen. my heart just sank. i just did a lot of stuff to it tonight. will i lose all of that? i changed facetime to sexytime and those sweet lockscreens.

    do i just plug my phone in and click tss in tinyumberella? ive never used it but the once to save shsh? in tinyumberella it says it detected recovery mode.

    Try clicking 'kick device out of recovery mode' in TinyUmbrella.

    Maybe, maybe not.
    Give it a try and if it doesnt load up then you might need to restore it.

    Well if you knew what cause this you could have SSH'd in to fix it. Your best option is to restore to 4.0.1 and restore from a backup made before the problem started and rejailbreak.

    Like we said above a few times.
    Restore to 4.0.1 and then JB it again.

    Download the 4.0.1 firmware from here. On Windows hold shift then press restore in iTunes and choose the firmware file you downloaded. On mac I think its alt or option and press restore.

    what do you mean? i have no idea why this happened? it was working fine and i didnt do anything in the last hour to it. when i plug it into itunes it says i must restore before using with itunes. then it askes if im sure i want to restore and update. the update part scares me.

    Yes you need the firmware file. I believe Apple are still signing 4.0.1 so iTunes shouldn't give you any problems.

    once this works, cross fingers, rejailbreak and cydia should have my files saved for me?

    Yes just restore from the firmware file you download. TinyUmbrella is needed for restoring to a firmware Apple isn't signing anymore.

    Restore from your backup and use pkgbackup like you said you have. How exactly it works I don't know as I don't own it but you can google for instructions if you need them
