It's almost impossible to brick an iPhone.

plug the phone in to your computer via USB, put it into recovery mode (hold power + home key for 10 seconds, then let go of the power key and continue holding home).

When it is in recovery mode, you can restore it using the 3.1.2 ipsw, but this will erase your data, but it will be like a clean flash and it won't be jailbroken.

if you don't want to do that, then download blackra1n, plug in your iPhone ot your pc and click "make it ra1n" and it should get it turned back on just fine.

Let me know. Also, which iPhone were you on, on which firmware?
