How to fix some mysterious problems.

So I wanted to remvoe the jailbreak on my iPhone so I tried to reset all the content and data on the iPhone. I have a iPhone 4S 7.1 and it is stuck on the apple with the loading bar, except it's been stuck at the loading bar for around 6 hours. I've tried to restore on 2 different computers, a Windows and a Mac OS X using the iTunes app, however, I keep getting error messages when I'm trying to restore or update my iPhone. Also, I did have my iPhone in DFU mode while trying to restore/update on my computer.

Unfortunately there is no way to fix this problem other than to enter dfu mode and restore. You never ever click erase all content and settings on a jailbroken phone.

DFU instructions: 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. Then just click restore in iTunes. You will be restored to the latest iOS version with no jailbreak.

Make sure your iTunes is up to date. If you're getting iTunes error -1 on a 4s, I'm sorry but you're SOL, that's a baseband error and IMO a 4s design flaw.
