    My iphone 5s was successfully jailbroken on ios 9.0.2. After a few weeks or months i decided to unjailbreak because of ios 9.2. I backed up my phone and reset to factory settings. Now my phone won't reboot or even let me go into safe mode. I tried the DFU mode but even that doesn't work. Please help any information is greatly appreciated.

    Did you use Reset All Content and Settings under your iPhone's Settings? If so, are you stuck in a boot loop? Restoring in DFU mode will usually fix this, Are you sure you actually entered DFU mode?

    If your phone is connected to your computer and iTunes is open, iTunes should then tell you it detects an iPhone that needs to be restored.

    . Excuse the coma-inducing background music.

    There's always a way out. :)

    Just remember to never use Erase All Content and Settings with a jailbroken phone.

    There's no such thing as an iBrick. As @Napoleon PhoneApart said, there's always a way out.

    I ran into a problem a few weeks ago with an Android phone I have. I was messing with it and managed to remove the entire operating system. Still managed to get it up and running again.

    I have to admit - I felt a little bit like Superman. :)
