    Default bricked my phone? tried to reset via settings reset, taking 8+hrs so far

    So help me out guys, did I blow up my phone? I'm trying to reset my iphone 4 for resale. After I did the reset, I went online and found that I wasn't suppose to do it via the settings, but should have done it through itunes.

    Anyone know what are the consequences of what I just did? just keep on waiting? thanks.

    1. Connect to iTunes.
    2. Hit Restore.
    3. Done.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    it was "almost" that simple. I found out i had to go to DFU mode to get to itunes.

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Put an iPhone Into DFU Mode

    Works like a charm.
