Thankyou for your input, but that method doesnt work, i left out the fact that my iphone is jailbroken, i also realised when i was counting the ten seconds, it would would start booting straight away, stop at six seconds and start again at 10 seconds and still failed to boot


is it recognised in itunes, can you put in recovery/dfu and restore? although my phone did this after multiple attempts at dfu it did finally work. I also had another similar problem which was solved by cleaning the power button-it had become stuck "on"
