Try these "won't boot" fixing steps - this one is good to start with:

Maybe you installed a very incompatible tweak? Try Mobile Substrate's safety feature: If that doesn't help, it could be that a tweak you installed before rebooting (even days before rebooting) is very incompatible with your version of iOS, which could cause a "boot loop" (getting the Apple logo over and over). Try forcing a reboot and then immediately holding down the Volume Up button as the device boots up. This will temporarily disable all extensions.

After booting up with extensions disabled, go into Cydia and uninstall any extensions you suspect may be causing this problem.

If you mean that you're working on restoring it to start over again fresh, yes, that sounds fine.
