    You'll probably need to put the phone into DFU mode and do a restore.

    If it's on 5.0 or 5.0.1 you have to boot tethered. You should try that before restoring, that may be all you need.

    Yeah, just restore. You don't even need to go into DFU.

    People here say just restore...however, I talked to an Apple employee, and a DFU mode restore cleans out the system better than just a typical restore. I also would not recommend you restore from a backup.

    To place your iDevice in DFU mode, hold your power and home button simultaneously while your iDevice is connected to your computer via a USB cord. When the screen shuts off, count from 0 to 5, then let go of the power button only (top right button), and hold your home button until your computer reads that it has an iDevice attached to it. Now, go and do a restore via iTunes.

    So does it really matter if u undo it as a restore or do a dfu restore?

    A restore is a restore. It wipes it clean whether regular or DFU. DFU is only required if iTunes is not recognizing the phone or when the restore/upgrade is not working and DFU helps force it.

    No not at all. As long as the restore completes.
