    Default iPhone 3G will not turn off.
    Sorry if this is posted somewhere else here but my internet here on my post in Afghanistan is not to good so I could not make it thru all the pages to search. So I will start at the beginning I bought an iPhone 3G w/FW 3.1.2 and BB of 05.11.07 that had been dropped and now has a cracked screen from a friend. I read somewhere to set it up as a new phone before JB/unlocking so I went into settings and hit reset/erase all content and settings. This then brought me to the screen that has you insert a sim card with no pin lock after hours of searching I came across tinyumbrella. I used tinyumbrella to put the iphone into recovery mode then took it out and now the phone works just fine except it will not shut off but it did before I did all this I even did the push the shift key and restore to iTunes FW 3.1.2 that I downloaded for redsn0w. I have tried pushing the power button and the home button at the same time to put it into DFU mode but that does not work either. The home button works for everything else that you could use it for. I even tried letting the battery drain to where the phone shuts off. When I try to jailbreak with redsn0w it says no device detected. Are there any thoughts on what this could be.
