Gonna have to use redsnow to kick it out of recovery mode and try again.

Ok, how do I do that?

Download that latest redsnow or tiny umbrella and you will see the tab to click.

With Evasi0n jailbreak, you can't do a regular restore. You need to put the iPhone in pwned DFU mode then do a restore. For instructions see link below. Good luck

Not sure what he did, but I did get it in to DFU mode, but it still wouldn't take the update and restore from itunes. I also downloaded tinyumbrella which recongized the phone and that it was stuck in a loop but could not break it.
