    Default Restore/Recover Jailbroken iPhone problem

    I recently jalibroke/unlocked my 1st Gen iPhone with 2.1 firmware following this guide How to: Jailbreak/Unlock Your 1st Generation iPhone 2.1 - Windows PC Edition on the site (excellent guide btw), all was working perfect then i did something stupid.

    I reset the iPhone settings and files from the settings screen (the one that takes around an hour). Now when I restart it just gets stuck with the apple (pineapple) screen and the iPhone wont show up in iTunes so i cant recover like normal. Is there anything i can do to fix it or restore it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Force it into recovery mode, restore it and JB it again.

    -Plug it into your computer.
    -Hold down power and home.
    -When you see Apple logo or Pineapple release the power button.
    -Continue holding the home key until the connect to iTunes logo appears.
    -You'll then be prompted by iTunes to restore.
