    I just Downloaded 4.1, and now my iPhone wont even turn on, it wasn't jailbroken, i loaded fine and then just shut off. I even plugged a power cord to it and it wont turn on. Thoughts?

    while holding both the sleep/wake and the home buttons down, plug it in and keep holding the button down for exactly 10 seconds. that should get it out of dfu mode. if that doesn't work, while holding just the home button down, plug it in and see if it goes into recovery mode.

    dfu mode means it's waiting for firmware upload and it looks black. if your computer is detecting the iphone when it's plugged it, that means it's already in dfu mode, and the above doesn't get it out, try restoring the device.

    When I upgraded mine to 4.1 I was sooooo nervous that it would mess up my phone so I literally sat there chain-smoking and watching the progress bar like a hawk! Glad you got yours fixed, I can only imagine how nervous you must have been!

    It's really rare to brick an iPhone. Every now and then during firmware upgrades, it goes into DFU or recovery modes, but it's really easy to get out of them. There's like backup firmware on the ROM that throws it into recovery mode which prevents complete bricking.
