What you need to do is do this in recovery mode. Just be warned you will wipe your data.

Plug the phone into a computer, then press the power and home buttons until it resets. When the Apple logo comes up, let go of the power button but keep holding the home button. Do this correctly and the phone will be in recovery mode.
