    Let it die and then plug it back in. A reset of sorts. Let us know of that fixes the issue. Unfortunately you'll have to wait for it to die now.

    I would say try dfu again first then try to use recboot.

    Dfu should definitely work if iTunes detects that it's plugged in and shows the spinning wheel. Like I said earlier, use recboot or tiny umbrella to put the phone immediately into recovery mode to restore.

    Gonna have to agree with the doc on this one. If the buttons are working and iTunes detects the phone then you should be able to put it into DFU mode.
