Stuck in Recovery Mode After Hacktivating iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.5

Hello guys, I got an iPhone 4 which was jailbroken and hacktivated using Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16 so that I can unlock it with Gevey SIM. But after rebooting, I have encountered numerous errors and I’m now stuck in recovery mode. I have already tried “Just boot tethered right now” but nothing happened. Please help. Thanks.
