How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have been trying to remove all of my jailbreaking apps but I deleted Cydia first, thinking that by doing that it would delete all my apps. I am still using iOS 6.1. (or whatever the one before ios7 came out) and am also trying to upgrade to ios 7. I have tried to restore my phone from my laptop, I have the recent iTunes and everything, but every time it finishes it a message pops up saying that a problem has occured. I also tried Erase All Settings but all that did was make it start rebooting forever. I tried resetting everything using my phone. Is there any way to remove Winterboard and also upgrade to iOS7?

Put it in dfu and click restore. If it errors, telling us the error helps

iTunes.Oh and you should save your 6.1 blobs with iFaith,since you won't have a jailbreak on 7.1
