Enter dfu mode:
1.Connect phone to computer. Turn phone off.
2.Hold power and home for 10 seconds
3. Let go of power button, but keep holding home button till the computer recognizes your phone.
4. Then restore.

it should work b/c the only way I can see them fixing the phone is by restoring it. By doing a restore they will never know it's been jailbrokenAndroid user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

I hate to revive a dead Topic but this is exactly what happen to my ipod touch 4g ios 6.0.1 but i have most of the files. i actually don't know what i deleted, something either from /var/mobile or /logs or /log :'[ the only problem is i cant go into DFU mode because The power button on my ipod is broken..
What my ipod dose is eventually boots to the setup app. i go through the setup -the apps and languages are spinning very fast- but when i'm done instantly the iPod will restart and back up to the beginning of the setup. when in the setup iTunes dose not recognize the device is plugged in but if i use tiny umbrella to put the iPod into recovery mode itunes gives an error 21
Edit- i can get iFunBox to recognize my device but i still don't know what to do.
