    Yesterday I jailbroke my iPhone 4 with Evasi0n 7. However, I decided I wanted to wait until everything was updated for iOS 7, so I tapped on "Erase All Content and Settings" in settings. Huge mistake. I never knew that doing that usually puts you in a boot loop. It was just stuck at the screen that's black with the gray loading circle, the same screen you get when you turn off your device. I waited for it to die, then charged it and brought it back to normal. So then I decided to restore it from "Find my iPhone." Another bad mistake (I still don't know why I never just restored from iTunes). Now whenever I wait for it to die, it turns back on and then keeps trying to restore itself because Find my iPhone has a restored queued up on my iPhone. Even if I quickly put it in Airplane Mode once it turns on, it still tries to restore. My power button is broken so I can't put it in DFU mode or recovery mode. How can I get it working again?

    Did you try a hard-reset?

    Thanks for the suggestion, I actually let it die, then I held the home button, waited after about 20 min for it to turn back on, then finally I could let go of the home button because that put it in recovery mode.

    Usually holding the power and home buttons work.Even better tiny umbrella will usually work even if its not in "recovery loop" it will usually kick it out of that too
