    Hold down the home and power buttons until the device seems to reboot. It'll probably get stuck at the Apple logo. Then, see this thread for a potential fix: iPhone 4 on 4.3.3 stuck on Boot logo AFTER Cydia TODAY update - JailbreakQA - if it helps, make sure you send a syslog according to the instructions.

    Just follow what I said above - hold down the home and power buttons until you see the Apple logo, and then follow the instructions in the thread.

    You can probably just hold down the home and power buttons until iTunes recognizes your phone as in recovery mode, and then you can use iTunes to restore the device, which will upgrade it to 5.0.1. (Keep in mind that you'll lose any not-backed-up data on the phone if you restore it.)

    Check this list of restore/upgrade problems to figure out what's causing that error.

    A friend if mine told me that if I wanted to update and restore my phone that it could only fully work on a Mac? Is this true?? Because I tryied too do it through iTunes with a custom firmware that I got from flexburns.com but iTunes would take too long and my phone would get out of DFU mode after some time..?

    Nah, you can update and restore a phone on Mac or Windows. Something else was going wrong.
