Proud new owner of an iBrick. Help!
So, I jailbroke my phone and long story short it it started messing up cause I downloaded a new source. Somebody said I could un jailbreak my phone and re-jailbreak it by erasing all content and resetting my phone. I did that and now it is stuck on the apple loading screen. I'm still able to turn the phone off by holding the power and the home button down. Is there anyway to salvage my phone?

First, you phone is not bricked. Brick pretty means phone is a "brick" = its dead and you can't do anything.
Second, what did you think will happen when you click "Erase all content...?" In short, you deleted everything, including the OS. Restore and your phone will be back to stock. If you wish to re-JB with 3GS or IP4, did you save your SHSH hashes for jailbreakable firmware 4.0.1 or below? If no, you are out of luck and have to wait for possible 4.1 JB. If 2G or 3G, restore to the firmware want and use Redsn0w to JB.

Turn the phone off, hold the home button down make sure iTunes is not open and connect your USB cable the phone will start to power on keep holding the power button until you see the itunes with a cable to iTunes you'll be in recovery mode if iTunes starts it will detect it if it doesn't start then start it and it will detect it. In the worst case if you JB to unlock you can sell it locked and buy a JBable one. If you just need JB you can wait for the 4.1 JB

Cydia and Rock are the 2 sources for jailbroken apps. Their the J/B version of the App Store and in each listing usually says compatible with or your device is compatible, etc.
Hope this helps

Pretty much as MustangLife has stated... From all I've read and seen, It's quite "Difficult" to "BRICK" your iphone. Most issues are user related and are correctable. One may not like the outcome, i.e. loosing JB, upgraded to iOS that has no JB. Failure to investigate before proceeding is the one step that creates headaches. People jump in with little or no knowledge... BAM... TROUBLE. There are numerous locations out there that are "REPUTABLE". Before any move may I suggest, INVESTIGATE.

You only need to change your password if you install Open SSH, otherwise its not necessary. You can use Mobile Terminal to do it.
Your JB phone is not more susceptible to malware or viruses than a stock iphone. As long as you only use trusted repos, there is no real risk...
