Unlocking! Jailbroken? Bricked/Stuck In Recovery
Ok, so you've got bricked?
1.) Hold down home and power button
2.) At the same time, press restore in iTunes.
You've got stuck in recovery mode?
1.) Google 'RecBoot'
2.) Download the zip that is hosted under a file sharing site.
3.) Download, extract.
4.) Create a shortcut to the recboot executable on your desktop.
5.) CONNECT YOUR iOS DEVICE
6.) Click the Kick out of recovery mode option.
P.S. I cried the first time my iPod got bricked. Don't, read.

It's too bad too many n00bs use "Bricked" when they don't really understand things. The fact that you're asking for help to get the device working again means it's not Bricked LOL. Since the first gen iPhone it has been virtually impossible to brick the iDevices.

Here is what always has worked for me over the last couple of generations:
If you are apparently in a locked up state, do nothing. Give it 5 more minutes and most of the time it will boot.
If the 'do nothing' fix does nothing, try this:
1. Plug into USB.
2. Wait 30 seconds or so.
3. Hold down the sleep and home buttons simultaneously for a very long time. Keep holding. When you see the apple, let go of both buttons.
edit: Forgot to reiterate the above sentiment - a brick is a brick. Get the terminology right. In my years as an i-er, I have not heard of a single verified story of a truely bricked phone that did not have hardware issues, eg) My iphone is bricked, oh ya, before I jailbroke, I dropped it from a 5 story building into a swimming pool and dried it in my oven - Geohot ruined my phone!!!!
