How to fix some mysterious problems.


I have a jailbroken 3GS, version 3.1.3, firmware 05.12.01.

I tried upgrading my this to 4.2.1 iOS but through sn0wbreeze it was not recognizing my Iphone. I read on the blog to check if my Cydia has been updated. So I went into Cydia to load the updates. While loading updates, some substrate thing got stuck so I shut off the Iphone and then when I restart it comes up with only the initial apple icon and gets stuck there. I cannot get into the Iphone now.

Can you please help?
