    Okay, so I had dust under my screen, and seeing that in 14 days I will be getting the iPhone 4, I thought "why not try to remove it." So I did seeing no harm at all from doing it. I performed it perfectly and exactly how it was in the videos I watched. After, I turned it on, and it was just stuck at the Apple. I rebooted it, and then I was brought back to my days of 1.x.x and I got the spinning wheel on the Apple logo screen. So I put it into DFU mode and attempted to restore it. It didn't work the first time, It resulted in a white screen. I tried again, and when I woke up in the morning, it was at the please activate iPhone screen (my SIM was in my other phone).

    I put the SIM into the phone, walked upstairs, and when I got there, the phone wouldn't unlock again or power on.

    I come back from school today, I hold the power button, it turns on, and it stays at the Apple logo. I shut it off (plugged in) and it just turns itself on again and then after about 13 seconds, fades into a white screen.

    Any help at all?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    EDIT: Also, I cannot put it into DFU mode or Recovery mode anymore because it boots up when I shut it off... =/

    EDIT2: I just got it into Recovery mode and, after reinstalling ALL Apple software on my computer, I am going to attempt to restore it.

    EDIT3: After attempting to restore from Recovery mode, my iPhone makes fun of iTunes by not allowing it to be "prepared for restore."

    In other words: iTunes was on the stage of "Preparing iPhone for restore" for about 5 minutes, then the iPhone reboots back into recovery mode, and iTunes yells this at me:

    You can always put a device in DFU mode, you're just not doing it right. Follow a tutorial on youtube with the timings shown, its the simplest way of doing it.

    Yes it shows the apple logo. Again, I said I was unable to enter DFU mode (Which I have done MANY times in the past including yesterday)

    I hold both buttons, and once it shuts off I wait about 3 seconds, hold the home button, then the device turns on... That's not supposed to happen, and I cannot fix it..
