Hold down the home and sleep buttons for 10 seconds, then release the sleep button and keep holding home for another 10 seconds. You can then restore in iTunes.

You could use an ssh ramdisk, but it's a bit complicated. I'm not sure it would even work on iOS 6.0.1.

Get a new iPhone. Then take apart the old one and remove the hard drive. Then put it in the new one. Simple!
