Thread: Can I Jailbreak and Activate My iPhone If The Power Button is Stuck?

    Exclamation Can I Jailbreak and Activate My iPhone If The Power Button is Stuck?
    I have my uncle's old iPhone 1st generation because the power button is stuck and he couldn't sell it for parts. I want to jailbreak it and activate it (because he restored it before he put it up on eBay) to use it as an iPod Touch. I know most jailbreaking methods require entering DFU mode or something else using the power button. Is there any possible way to activate it without using the power button? Please help! I have access to Mac OS X and Windows XP!

    i had the same problem when i got my 2g. i cant remember what FW version was out then, but you have to create a custom ipsw, so that iTunes installs the jailbreak as it restores.

    FWIW, the cables you need to replace cost around $10, if you search around on the net. power button, headphone jack, volume button, and vibrator are parts of that one cable.
