How to fix some mysterious problems.

For some reason I did an upgrade to iOS 6.1 on a factory unlocked iPhone through iTunes. It would not go past the activation screen. So, after reading a few answers here, I checked "Downgrade from iPad baseband" and tried to jail break the phone using redsn0w.

Big mistake, I'm stuck on a white screen since yesterday. "Just Boot" on redsn0w is the only thing that triggers this screen (power, power + home, nothing else does anything to the black screen). It shows my phone to be in DFU Mode with 'new BR'. I'd really appreciate some help on what my next move should be.
