    wish I read this before trying the exact same thing, if you device is jailbroken and you do a reset all content and setting, you will get stuck at the Apple logo. At least that is what happening to me now. Bahhh, now I have to update to 4.2.1 just to restore as the phone was never previously jailbroken. So only 4.2.1+ blobs are saved in Cydia.

    This sucks.
