If it is stuck in DFU, just hold down the Home and Power buttons until the Apple disappears then re-appears, then release both

You can also try that several time for a boot loop, slim chance it will allow it to reboot correctly

If it is a recovery loop, use Redsn0w as advised.

Try to put it in DFU mode again and restore. If it doesn't work then i would suggest going back to 4.1 and see if it works. If it works then it's your not phone's problem.
