How to fix some mysterious problems.

I started updating my Cyrus tweaks, and one was safe mode for iOS 7 (current jailbreak is evasi0n7) and when my iPod went to restart springboard, it went to the apple logo, then a page briefly popped up saying "resetting settings" for some reason, and then went to the normal boot settings, but instead of going to my lock screen it went to an infinitely long loading circle, and I tried repeatedly turning it off and on again, and at one point left it for 2 hours to see if anything would change, and the outcome is still the same, any help?

Restore in iTunes in DFU mode (see DFU instructions below), setup AS NEW DEVICE, then jailbreak, then restore from iTunes backup if desired.

Plug device into computer via USB. Don't look at the device, concentrate on the counting. Hold home+power for 10 seconds, then release power but keep holding home for 12 more seconds. Screen should be black.
