    Default Stuck on Apple Logo screen
    What do I do to get it off of it? I can't figure it out. It asked me to reboot my 3G when I installed SwirlyMMS

    If rebooting the iPhone won't work, you have no other alternative but to DFU and restore and re-Jailbreak

    Oh and I've tried to restore it, but it won't go into DFU mode. When I plug it in to my computer it still stays at the home screen and can't restore it through iTunes.

    You will have to get it in DFU to restore. Sorry this didn't help you. Must have some other problems. Good luck

    Don't want to burst the bubble, but not many had had success in letting it die. There has to be a way to get in DFU. there are a ton of guides out there but they about the same. I came across this one in google. Worth a try.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connect and disconnect.
    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

    Everytime I try to enter DFU mode my phone goes straight back to the Apple screen. Is there ANYTHING else I can do?
