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

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!
