Best guess is that you're going to need a DFU reset right here.

Timing is everything.

Connect the phone to iTunes.

Hold down the home and power button for exactly ten seconds.

At ten seconds release the power button, but continue to hold down the home button.

In a few seconds a message will pop up on the computer running iTunes that the computer has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Follow the steps from there. You will have to restore from your most recent backup, and may even need to re-jailbreak your phone. But you won't be the proud owner of a brick, so it's worth it.

Good Luck.
