    Put it in DFU mode (Google it) and restore it with iTunes.

    Future tip, never ever ever OTA update when you are jailbroken. It causes a boot loop as you've seen

    OTA updates don't run because of Apple's checks. The device will reboot and be stuck at the Apple logo. By if you force restart the device, it'll reboot as normal and tell you the update failed and to restore it with iTunes.
