Maybe you did a tethered jailbreak. try downloading the latest greeposi0n 6.1 and re jailbreak. if you want u can restore first (only if u didn't install ipad baseband 6.15.00)

Can you tell us what error you got when you tried to restore? generally nothing can stop a restore from iTunes unless you have an iPad baseband to allow carrier unlock.

if you have an iPad baseband, you better use a custom firmware file instead of the official Apple one, you can select the ipsw file by holding the SHIFT key while clicking the RESTORE button in iTunes (just make sure you have the custom firmware ready)

I thought you could restore to 4.2.1 but the baseband would not update and all should be well ? then reattempt your jailbreak ? worked for me ? Mind you some people suggested that I restore from a custom firmware. Worth a shot either way.

I've got this problem once. I just keep slapping my phone a few times(due to frustration). After that i became normal. What is the real cause i don't know. also,when i connect to itunes,i can sync and add in songs + applications without the screen on the phone changing.
