    Which phone do you have, which firmware version, which PC, and what have you done to the phone to make you ask this question?

    It's very difficult to brick an iPhone unless you physically damage it, like dropping it in the toilet or running over it with your car.

    Or, ironically, if you drop a brick onto it.

    Just do a hard reset and then use DFU mode and restore/jailbreak again.

    Your phone is only bricked if it can't be placed in DFU mode. Everything else is not bricking. By the way, chances are if you can't get it into DFU mode you just aren't doing it right. Try again.

    I think the OP is a troll. No info about the real problem, it's his "friend", no response to questions....

    Time wasting.
