Thread: How do I restart my iphone without sleep button?

    Default How do I restart my iphone without sleep button?
    How can I restart my iphone without using the sleep/wake button? It's broken and since the phone isn't activated, Apple refuses to fix it.

    Please help!

    let it die and then plug it back in lol

    No, but really I'm not sure if there is a way. Someone else will probably be able to help


    Alright I just read that you can reboot the iphone using term-vt100. If you do not have it download with installer. Its under the system category. I'm not sure if "reboot" is the exact command or what though. I'll try to figure it out for you.

    Okay:
    1: make sure you have term vt100
    2: login name is: root
    3: password is: alpine
    4: type: "reboot" without the " then hit enter
    5: hit home button and wait a second

    Installed VT-100 (thanks for the hint) and tried to login... no success. My firmware is 1.1.4. Tried to login as root with 'alpine' as password, said login incorrect.

    My phone is unlocked with the Zibri method... is there a way to reset the root password?

    Oh yes! My fault you need to go to installer then to tweaks(1.1.4) and see if there is something called "suid lib fix" even though I think there isn't one for 1.1.4, so I'm not sure. But I'll check up...

    Alright, I heard the fix works so here is what to do.
    Sorry about this.

    Uninstall term vt100

    Add "http://www.trejan.com/irepo" to your sources

    Go to tweaks 1.1.3 in installer

    Then download the "suid lib fix"

    Then reinstall vt100

    that should work otherwise you will need to ssh into your phone
