    you might of held the hard reset too long and threw it into DFU mode. try booting the phone with either ziphone or ibrickr and see if it boots..what did you install by the way?

    firstly, what does iTunes show when u connect ur iphone to the computer? If you can see your iPhone in iTunes, and a grayed 'update' button and a clickable Restore button, your phone should be in DFU mode.

    Download a fresh piece of firmware at http://broomvideos.com/winpwn/boot2.php towards the left you can choose which firmware you like. CARE THAT YOU HAVE IPHONE NOT IPOD TOUCH. Connect your iphone, hold Shift and click restore, find the iphone firmware file and open it. iTunes will restore your iphone... When you're at the activation screen, you can use iLiberty to unlock your phone.

    the image you see on your iphone means your phone is in the recovery mode. Since iTunes won't let you restore, you need to put the phone in DFU mode by pressing and holding the home and sleep/wake button until the phone turns off. let go of the sleep/wake button and plug the usb cord into your phone (with itunes already open) and continue to hold the home button. your phone screen will remain black. continue to hold the home button until itunes sees your phone in recover mode and prompts you to restore. then restore
