    So I tried restoring my Iphone 4 last night after jailbreaking with Limera1n. I wanted to use Greenpois0n instead. Now my Iphone 4 is in a recovery loop. Below is the list of actions that I have tried in an attempt to fix the issue.

    -Restore via Itunes [in recovery mode]
    -DFU mode restore
    -Itunes uninstall
    -Itunes reinstall
    -New IPSW
    -Fresh USB cable
    -Used Limera1n in an attempt to make it boot/work again
    -Used Greenpois0n in an attempt to make it boot/work again
    -Used TinyUmbrella to kick out of recovery mode
    -Used IReb to kick it out of recovery mode
    -Used RecBoot to kick it out of recovery mode
    -Changing 'hosts' file to remove gs.apple.com [with an IP Address in front of it]
    -Rebooted computer

    Anyone have any ideas for me to use to fix my Iphone? I was going to allow the battery to drain and restore after the battery had died.

    Thanks beforehand for whatever you all suggest.

    I won't have access to another computer for another 14 hours or so. I'm at college, and would have to drive home, otherwise I would have by now.

    Thanks though, I'll try it when I get home tomorrow.

    Another computer is probably the best route. What happens when you go to dfu mode?

    When I go with DFU or Recovery mode, it gets barely over half in the process on the Iphone screen, and stops working. I waited 4+ hours for each process to work. Internet connection shouldn't be an issue.

    Try this:
    -Open TinyUmbrella
    -Start TSS Server
    -DFU + Restore.

    That might work. And if it does go into recovery after half-way, just click the Kick Out of Recovery button in TinyUmbrella.
