    Nope.. you need a working home and power button to get into Recovery or DFU mode. Bummer.

    3.) Connect your iPhone and ignore iTunes

    4.) Goto Start - run

    5.) Next type in “c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu”

    6.) Wait for iPhone to show a “white” screen.So you are in DFU mode...

    Cool Can this be a New way to clean iPhone?
    Hi, all.

    I'm also having problems with iphone 3G 3.0. after upgrading to 3.0, the fone keeps telling me to 'wait for Activation, - This may take some time'.
    After a whole day of waiting, I've decided to downgrade to 2.2.1 but also cant do this. cos, i've read about using itunes but not what version, i should to do so?
    can som1 verify this please.

    ? - Can i use WinSCP to delete all info from the iphone and then restore complete new firmware of 2.2.1?

    Steps to Put Your iPhone/iPad/iPod into DFU Mode:
    Step 1 : Launch iTunes and connect your iPhone to your Windows PC or MAC.
    Step 2 : Hold Down the Power Button and Home Button together at the same time.
    Step 3 : Now count for 10 seconds and after that release the Power button but Continue to Hold the Home Button.
    Step 4 : After 3-5 seconds, your iPhone will look like completely turned off.

    How is this an alternate method???

    This is the standard method.
    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!
