    What exactly does this mean? Are you having a black screen or a white screen? Are you able to turn the phone off and on via the top right power button?

    If i had to theorize what happened here, you probably (actually most definitely) stopped the flashing of crucial files mid-flash. The phone is probably in a suspended state that you can really do nothing about if you are not getting response from any of the keys and are not able to get into DFU mode or anything of the sort. The "good" news is that you can probably take it into an Apple store, and if they are unable to really do anything to the phone, you can say it just "happened" and they will probably swap it out for you. I don't recommend sending it in, however, as they can probably see that it was messed with. I have heard stories of people sending a phone in with a fresh restore and Apple sent it back stating that it was modified and therefore the warranty was void.

    Either way, let us know what happens! And good luck!

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    gackm is probably pointing you in the right direction n so is sziklassy
    hold down the power and home buttons together....
    if the screen turns off n on again then i guess ur ok....
    so basically u hold down the power and home buttons together for about 5 seconds or so....ur screen will go off n turn on again and u will see the grey apple logo....at that point leave the power button immediately and keep the home button pressed.....u should enter dfu mode...
    ull see an itunes logo and a usb cable with an arrow pointing towards the itunes logo....
    from this point onwards restoring the phone is easy.
    good luck to you bro....hope ur phone gets fixed

    Use Ziphone to put your phone into DFU mode. Then smack that thing back in iTunes to restore. I had the same problem where BSOD was the only thing i can see.
