So I've been using the 5.0.1 Tethered jailbreak on my iphone 4 since it came out. I never went to the untethered jailbreak, or upgraded to any of the newer jailbreaks because my lock button is broken, so I could never get DFU Mode, or atleast I don't know how (which is why I am here).
Anyway, I just took my phone out of my pocket to discover that it is in Semi Tether mode. Without a lock button I am not able to get into DFU Mode to boot it back up normally, so it is essentially stuck in Semi Tether. Before I go through the process of unjailbreaking it and bringing it to Apple to have my power button fixed, does anybody know a way I can get into DFU mode without the use of the power button. I would be forever grateful if there was a workaround for this.

There is... But the way to do it is to enter a true hardware DFU mode.... Good thing is that you'll then be able to grab your shsh using redsn0w & stitch it to an ipsw (as apple don't sign 5.0.1 now, that's the only way to retain your 5.0.1).
