Have I bricked my iphone?

Hi guys I tried to jailbreak my iphone 3gs which was already updated to 4.3.5 when I got it, so I had to use redsn0w which seemed to work, however firstly I cannot open some apple software such as, app store, settings and itunes, however I can open everything else, and I can also open Cydia. Therefore I tried to restore the iphone so that I could use everything again.

However in Itunes my iphone does not appear or anything, when i plug it in its like nothing happens. However the sound still comes when I plug it in, and so does the Iphone autoplay. The phone is also fully recognised in Tiny Umbrella, its just itunes that cant pick it up. So what can I do at this point? Is there a way of restoring the iphone?

Thanks

Do you have the latest version of iTunes installed? Have you tried syncing on another computer with iTunes and your Apple ID?

all you need to do is connect your phone to the computer and put it into 'DFU Mode' and restore.
