    Default i'm stumped. DFU lead to blank screen and no mounting.
    Hey guys,

    Tried to pwnagetool (previously jailbroken 3G 3.1.2 -> 4.0) my iphone and ended up getting errors (2006, 1604).

    Now I can't return from DFU. Instead I have black screen, it doesn't seem to charge and it won't mount on any computer.

    It should be noted that my power button has failed years ago, and usually i've just plugged it in if i ever needed a power button.

    I would get your power button fixed. You need to put it in a user generated DFU mode, because there's no way of telling what the jailbreak did to your phone, but to get to DFU mode you need a power button.
    If this was helpful, or even if it gave you a laugh, click the Thanks button!

    This prob won't work but worth a try. Search and download the program RecBoot, connect your iphone and run the program and click on reboot and see if it kicks your iphone out of reovery/dfu.
