    Default DFU mode w/o Lock Button** Need Help!
    I'll keep it simple:

    iPhone 3.1.2 Jailbroken & Unlocked via Blackra1n.

    The lock/power button is BROKEN.

    How can I put it in DFU mode so I can use Redsn0w to jailbreak, ect.

    Are there any apps in Cydia, Rock, ect that put the phone into DFU?

    I have tried ZiPhone with no luck. Also the iPhone needs to be in DFU MODE, not RECOVERY MODE.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!

    I had the same issue man. I cant quite remember how I did it, but IIRC if you hold the home button then plug it into itunes and keep holding it then it'll go in DFU. I remember I had to search around for like half an hour to find the answer on the internet last time. Sorry I dont remember better.

    open itunes, turn phone off. Hold down home button while connecting to pc/itunes and after connecting cable keep holding down home button till you see the connect to itunes picture on the phone.
