    Plug it into computer + DFU Mode + Shift + Restore + Custom Firmware from WinPwn = Success.

    Plug the phone into iTunes and press and hold both the power and home button simultaneously for EXACTLY 10 seconds then release the power button only keeping the home button pressed (thiscan take up to 30 seconds more) until iTunes recognizes the phone in DFU mode. Then restore.
