    Default broken home button -- can't navigate, can't jailbreak -- completely screwed

    I suffered water damage and now my home button no longer works. My iPhone is way past warranty and was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me. Navigation is near impossible without a working home button and I can't enter DFU mode to jailbreak my phone. I'm running Windows with an Iphone 3G iOS4.1 so redsn0w is my only option (also the option which requires DFU mode). suggestions?

    I don't know if you can find some of the old tools which can help I remember there were some tools which can kickout from DFU mode...anyway how about repairing your iPhone? why u don't consider it?

    Get the hardware fixed, third party repairs don't cost so much (depends on which part is actually damaged). You really do need that button working.

    The old tools pretty much don't work.
    I saw something about a tool from iPhoneLinux that can get you into DFU mode. I've not tested this, it might be incorrect information.
