Put the device into DFU Mode, then restore using iTunes. To put your device in DFU Mode.... 1. Turn the device off. 2. Hold the power button for one second. 3. Hold both power and home for 10 seconds. 4. Release the power button, and keep holding home until iTunes pops up and says it found a device in Recovery Mode (it is actually DFU)
