How to fix some mysterious problems.

Okay, so I have an Iphone 4s currently running iOS 6.1.1 and the Evasi0n iOS 6.x untethered jailbreak. What happened was my Apple App Store was not working, it wouldnt let me download apps, i could search and pull up the appstore but that was it. So i went searching for a solution. The one I found was that you could do a light reset of your phones settings by going to your settings app> general> reset> reset all. So I did, thinking that it wouldnt affect my springboard or anything else. Of course shortly after I did this I read that if i am running a Jailbreak i shouldnt. So the consequence for my ignorance was my iphone is now forever in Mobile Substrate Mode or "Safe Mode" I have found no way to fix this since the 4s is an A5 device and I cant pwned DFU it or downgrade or anything. The only solution I have is to upgrade to 6.1.3 and I have tried that but so far it stays stuck on "verifying update with Apple" for like 2 hours and i havent had the chance to wait it out and see if it will eventually go through. So, I would greatly appreciate if anyone could give any advice to me on another solution, or why my update is giving me trouble and how to fix it. Thanks! :) -Kc

I managed to finally get itunes to restore it, since it wouldnt respond to anything like ifunbox since the drivers finally corrupted, so i put it in DFU mode and magic, itunes finally restored it, so awesome. Now I just have to wait for a downgrade software or iOS7 JB. So sweet. I'd recommend theiphoneguy's solution for those of you who are able to connect to ifunbox, but otherwise, i got it!

Possible solution. Install/delete dreamboard/winterboard through cydia. It worked for me and it's worth a shot for anyone else whose going through the same dilemma.
