I hope this is the right forum for this, im new to these forums, and i had a question with my iPhone.
I have an 2g Iphone with the Sleep button jammed. itīs blocked with 2.2.1 Firmware. is there anyway to jailbreak without the DFU mode?
If i use quickpwn i have to put it on dfu mode, but the button dosnt work.. if i try using a CFW the itunes dont let me do that cause "invalid sim card".
The iphone works fine, at least everything else... i was wondering if is there any app to put it on DFU mode, but i think ziphone and Ibrickr dosnt work with firm 2.0...
Please help, any ideas....

I can advise one program&some scripts to put it into dfu mode.But i recommend you should go to apple.Coz if something goes wrong,you will not be able to enter dfu or recovery mode again...

Ok,you should know,this method sometimes works or sometimes not...
1-First download the required archive Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
2- Extract the archive to the root of your hard drive, should be C:/DFU/
3-Connect your iPhone and ignore iTunes
4-Go to Start - run on windows
5-Next type in “c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu”
6-Wait for iPhone to show a “white” screen.So you are in DFU mode...

I have the exact same problem.
I don't know if the firmware is 2.2.1, but it is the firmware that itunes 8.0.1 will restore with.
I've tried that small program that you suggest here, but it does not seem to work. It only puts the phone into restore mode, while saying "searching for iphone". Do you have to wait for a long time in order to get it into DFU?
Is there any other program/script?
Or is there any other way you can unlock the phone? (through a sim card, for example)
Thanks in advance
