If iTunes does not recognize it, then how is it telling you to restore it?
Sounds like iTunes is recignizing it, but is telling you, you have or need to restore it ie DFU or Recovery mode.
Currently what is showing on your screen? If nothing try holding down the power and Home button for 30 seconds, then try and power on. This works if you are in DFU and do not want to be. If it shows the USB and iTunes then it is in recovery mode, which means you can restore from a back or update to stock.
Since you are jailbroken, then you might try a shift+restore and select your ipsw file and restore from it. It may require you jailbreaking it again, but that would only take 2-3 minutes.
