I have a unlocked Iphone 3gs. I recently updated to IOS 5.1 from redsn0w. Everything was ok until it just randomly turned off though fully charged. It finished the update and i was using my phone as normal then it just flicked off. Now when I try to turn it on it turns an assortment of colors first a blue screen, then yellow,and so on. and it's been doing that flicking off. I googled for about an hour and a half proir to posting this and this is what i have done so far to no avail. so if you know anything else that could please answer :)

-used the redsn0w feature to just boot tethered.
-used TinyUmbrella and tss has been running for hours now
-held the power and home key, nothing
-thrown it against the wall in frustration..ok i haven't done that but i am highly frustrated so pleaseeee help.
