    Unhappy Jailbroken IPhone 3 will not turn on and cannot be recognized by ITunes

    My IPhone was a company incentive and now I am returning the phone. My brother jailbroke my IPhone and everything was great until today. I decided I was going to reset my settings from the phone, which was a bad mistake. Now my phone switches back and forth from the Apple logo to the Jailbroken Skull. It wont do anything but shut off if I press the home button and the start button. My ITunes won't recognize my IPhone so I can't follow the hard reset from ITunes. Does anyone have any suggestions or and am I out of luck? Also the battery won't charge because the phone keeps powering on and off.

    Hi. I would suggest that you need to use DFU mode to help you restore the device. iTunes should recognise it if you put it into DFU mode.

    DFU Mode made easy

    Read this guide and follow the instructions exactly. Take you time and give iTunes a chance to recognise the device in DFU mode. Then press restore.

    Hope that helps.
