    if you can get the phone in dfu mode that should erase your jailbreak aan then you could take it to apple. also you could try using rock your phone. it has a deal that will boot the phone normally . i used it to boot a 2g that had a bad com board an it worked like a charm.

    If your seeing the USB cord screen your not in DFU mode. DFU mode would be a blank screen. Try this.
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connects and disconnects.
    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.
