So I have an iPhone 4, running iOS 5.0.1 and jailbroken with Redsnow. My phone is frozen on the lockscreen and has been for just under 3 hours now. Also, the home and power buttons are unresponsive so I cannot force it into recovery or DFU modes. When I connect to my PC, running Windows 7, iTunes freezes up but I am able use iFunBox so my PC does see the phone.
If anyone knows what I need to do, please help. Thank you.

have u tried holding ur home button for 2second then whilst keepin it in holding ur power button for 5 seconds whilst connected?
if nothing else works perhaps just waiting for the battery to die?Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

Thanks for your reply to mblanchard on 12-10-2011. I had almost an identical problem and was getting desperate for a solution. My phone locked up during a Cydia app update and neither the power-down button nor the home button would work would work for a reboot.
Your suggestion did the trick. Thanks!
