    so i have drained my iphone 4 battery... after reaching home i plugged in the usb to my computer and start charging it. it promptly show a battery icon charging.. and after a while it goes to an Apple Icon page.. I cant seemed to on it.. according to my friend I need to unlocked the iphone again thru the jailbreak program i used.. but i am using jailbreakme.com which downloads and install directly from the device itself..
    HOW do I address this problem...? battery is charged?

    for an hour? thats a bit long to not be able to turn it on. usually its just for the first 5 maximum minutes..

    what i would do is unplug it and try turn it on, then hold power and home button for about 10 seconds do a hard reset see if that does the trick

    tried that.. but doesnt work...that's why i am buying the idea that after jailbreakme my iphone will be locked or wat not.. this is my 1st Mac Apple Product. so i do not know any basic concept it uses.. like unable to on the phone for hours after draining it... it's still red ...

    when you put it into dfu mode itunes will detect it but only give you the option to restore nothing else

    DFU mode is your last resort. If you send it to apple I would bet they would be able to boot it up. But your warranty will be voided when they see it's jailbroken. Did you follow the video guide? Sounds like your missing a step somewhere?

    yes danny did mention that in his post, the link has instructions, but i thought you did not want to restore since you had files you needed. otherwise i would of said to put in dfu mode like danny did :) but good thing you got it sorted out now
