I have an iPhone 4, jailbroken, and running iOS 7.1.2. I opened the Cydia app, it appeared to be loading something so I waited. Then the screen turned black. I can still hear sounds such as the charging tone when you plug your iPhone in to your PC and things like that. A few posts have recommended doing some Lock Button and Home Button combo but my lock button is broken and doesn't work.

I can't seem to restore because Find My iPhone is enabled and I need to disable it to be able to restore.

Is there any way I can restore this phone and remove Cydia?


Try downloading redsn0w and creating a DFU mode IPSW. Restore the IPSW with iTunes. Now that your phone is in DFU mode, you can totally wipe the iPhone and restore.

You can download redsn0w here.


hold down the power and home button untill the apple logo apears this will take 15-20 sec

What I did was leave my phone on the charger for 10-15 minutes then I pressed my power button (my home button is broken) then my lock screen wallpaper showed up.
