How to fix some mysterious problems.

Just last night I installed Winterboard onto my jailbroken iPhone 4S running iOS 6.1.2. I had jailbroken it with Evasi0n. I had many packages installed, so any one of these could have been incompatible with Winterboard. After installing it, I clicked the "Reboot" prompt. Then it got stuck looping the boot logo, so I left it plugged into an outlet for the night and just let it do its thing. This morning when I woke up, I'm left with a dim screen showing it's out of battery and my computer won't detect the iPhone when I plug it in, so I can't restore it. What do I do to fix this problem, and what caused it? I need help as soon as possible, because I use my phone daily and do not have to money to buy a new one.

EDIT - It just attempted to power on again and my computer detects it, but it is still stuck on the boot loop.

I have also tried holding the power and home buttons to turn it off, then holding volume up to go and delete Winterboard until I can figure out what happened. When I do this, it leaves me on a very dim screen with the Apple logo and does not power on. At this point I just want to restore it to the default iPhone 4S with factory settings.

Sadly I could not find help for my problem in the FAQ, I feel as though I just need more guidance through my specific problem. I tried restoring the iPhone but just results in errors on iTunes. I also tried deleting files in /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/ and after deleting winterboard and a few others, I just deleted them all.
