I would try DFU Mode then set up as new device. Not restoring any of the back-ups. There are several helpful stickies on how to restore via Itunes on DFU Mode.

well i really dont know whats happening :( i tried the dfu mode (you need to turn your device off. When it is completely off, push and hold the power button. Count to 5 and then push and hold the home button (keeping the power button pressed down still). Count to 10 and then let go of the power button (keeping the home button pressed down). Count to 30 and you should hear some notification.) then i plug the usb cord into my laptop then still the apple logo appear but the itunes detect it and said that the software needs to be updated then i press the download and update and now its still downloading it says iphone software update(5hours)--fail lol....will it really take that long?

No. Your device is not the 4S, so you won't be able to use it, it'll give you an error. As I've said, check whether the right side of the iPhone has a SIM tray or not. If it does it's the iPhone 4 GSM. If it doesn't it's the iPhone 4 CDMA. From your screenshot, it says the device is an iPhone 4, not an iPhone 4S. If it's a 4S, it'll say 4S instead of 4.
