    Default Iphone 5 stuck in boot loop.

    I have an iphone 5 and it is stuck in boot loop and shows the boot file (atleast what I think) during start up.

    I tried to update it but got stuck during update. I have tried both dfu and recovery mode, have updated my windows 7, updated itunes but nothing seems to work. I even tried with redsn0w and used the "extras" but it did not help.

    Anyone who can help me?

    You should try again to restore in DFU mode and forget jailbreak or anything else. Just get it right with the latest software and you should be fine with that.

    If the device was jail broken and you chose the "erase all contents and settings" option then it may take you a few tries to get the device to restore. Reboot your PC. Turn off the iPhone. Wait about a minute, then put the device in DFU mode and try again.

    Were you trying to do an OTA update while jailbroken?

    You said you tried dfu mode and iTunes couldn't recognize it?
