    Something BoosTools did screwed up the filesystem so that Springboard can't run. As you can't determine the cause, you're likely going to have to restore your iPhone.

    Connect it to the computer, hold the sleep and home buttons for precisely 10 seconds and then let go of the sleep button. Keep holding the home button until iTunes gives you the message its found an iPhone that needs restoring.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
