    Probably not.

    First Rule of iPhone (that I and im sure others learned the hard way)
    Never install anything you dont know when you are away from home
    So long, and thanks for all the fish

    You COULD try just holding power and the Home button down for 10 seconds, then letting go of just the power button. That has worked for me in the past, without needing a computer and without having to restore.

    Good luck!

    no. i managed to do this when i first got my iphone and didnt realize that DFU mode is achieved a completely different way. i tried doing it the old way and it ended up with an endless boot cycle. all you have to do is put it into DFU and recover and your fine.....but you will need a pc for that
    The beatings will continue until morale improves.
