Default HELP ME!!

After a failed attempt while trying to jailbreak my friend's iPhone we encountered a huge problem. It finished the jailbreak and even brought up the running pineapple. Now the phone is stuck on the apple symbol and won't restart the phone. The jailbreak is redsn0w and the operating system is 4.3.3. PLEASE I NEED HELP. The phone won't turn on and iTunes nor my computer will read it. I've tried restoring it via redsn0w and no cigar. Please if you know anything HELP ME!!

You'll have to put it in DFU mode. Wait for the battery to run out (if you can't turn your phone off normally), then plug the iphone into your computer (with iTunes started) and do the following
Hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds
Let go of the power and keep home pressed down for another 8 seconds.
iTunes should pop up after that saying it's detected a phone in service mode or something, you can reset it from there.
