Hold home and power until you get a black screen and let go, then try booting again.

Now your in DFU, start iTunes and restore to 4.2.1. Then DFU again and run gp to jb.

i tried this, since my post i have kicked into recovery mode and have been trying to restore thru itunes, but it has stopped twice, and keeps going back to the loop with greenpoision bootlogo and hanging there, while in this loop and hooked up the computer it just keeps beeping every 10 sec like when you charge

iphone wont turn off while plugged into computer, what should i do now?

It should, if you hold sleep/power for long enough. It will seem like forever, but really is only 2-3 minutes.

It's downloading the ipsw, just let it finish, it won't need to re-download it. When it finishes, hold SHIFT and click restore, then find the ipsw file it downloaded. You'll have to search for ipsw, I don't remember where itunes puts it off the top of my head.

i've got into DFU mode now, will itunes allow me to reconnect and continue after download, or should i restart the download while in DFU mode?
