Hello. Thanks for joining. Have you attempted to put your phone in DFU mode with iTunes open to then restore to factory and use a backup? To put it in DFU mode, Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time. After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

im trying that now 1 sec i hope it works because i don't wanna have 2 get a new iPhone just yet i wanna wait till the iPhone5
I just read online that "Wifi Sync" can cause this issue. Try to remove this from Cydia (don't worry, it'll still be paid if you wanna try to re-install it), also restart your computer if you'd like. Then try to restore your iPhone, recover using backup, then re-jailbreak. Be careful when installing certain applications, some will mess your phone up when it's not for your specific iPhone.

ohh i kno :) btw its taking a long time 2 even get the first little bar now on the iPhone recover
Give it time. If it doesn't seem to go anywhere, re-attempt it. I'm not sure of what else. It shouldn't take long to do the initial restore.

Yeah, unplug and replug.
