    Use jailbreakme.com to jailbreak and ultrasn0w to unlock. You won't need to enter DFU mode for this.

    If you ABSOLUTELY want to use a DFU level jailbreak. Your only option is to use PwnageTool and the method explained earlier in this thread (page 5 or 6) where you deliberately corrupt LLB.

    Otherwise.. I would suggest you get the button repaired. It is relatively cheap.

    Default DFU Mode with broken Home button

    Hi there, I'm running a 4.1 on a 3G and iTunes v10.0.1.22 but I'm having trouble jailbreaking due to a broken home button.

    To boot in DFU mode I've attempted modifying the .ipsw but I'm getting an (11) error when attempting to restore.

    The guides I've checked say there should be 2 folders in \Firmware\all_flash but the firmware I downloaded (iPhone1,2_4.1_8B117_Restore.ipsw) only has one which is \all_flash.n82ap.production. I tried just renaming applelogo.s5l8900x.img3 to LLB.n82ap.RELEASE.img3 and deleting the original LLB.n82ap.RELEASE.img3 but this results in the error on iTunes.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,
    Notski

    OK..

    Firstly, as it is a 3G, definitely do this with a 3.x IPSW not a 4.x IPSW - this is because the Soft-SHSH added for restores to 4.x on the 3G can make this harder to get the modified 4.x IPSW past iTunes

    Secondly, you might be doing the process wrong. You need to still have the applelogo file in the IPSW as well as the same applelogo copied/renamed to LLB....

    I recommend that you:

    Use a zip utility and modify the IPSW without unzipping it. Then you simply extract out the applelogo file, rename it and add it in, selecting "replace" or "update" or ********* depending on your ZIP utility

    You can also unzip the whole IPSW, copy/rename the applogo file to LLB and zip it up again. However some ZIP utilities recompress in a way that is incompatible with what iTunes expects.

    In all honesty my friend, a broken HOME button is not a good thing.

    How will you exit to the homescreen when you want to close an app? Unless of course you use ACTIVATOR. Hmm that's a possibility.

    Mind you as for DFU mode that's an almost impossible one. You need the HOME button. You can't use things like ACTIVATOR as the phone hasn't actually booted in yet.

    You've just summarised the technique explained in this thread and credited only ih8sn0w. Also the post seems to be purely linkbait to check out your blog.

    It was actually musclenerd who proposed this technique, which has been well documented in this thread. Please get your facts straight.

    Default How to Unlock if the Power Button is broken?

    There is an iPhone my friend would give me if I can unlock it for TMobile.

    The only problem is, the power button is broken. He just uses an app for turning on an off.

    He said he has tried everything and has never been able to unlock the iPhone, but I know there are people out there that know how to get around this

    Any ideas on how to unlock an older iPhone if the power button is broken?

    I've merged your post with the correct thread.

    There are two documented ways to work around broken power or home button for jailbreak (and subsequent unlock) for the 2G and 3G iPhone, they are both explained in this long thread - but there is also a lot of noise in this thread. People who don't understand the techniques involved.

    You originally posted in a section for 2G iPhones only. So I'm going to assume that was deliberate and give you advice for a 2G iPhone.

    Solution #1:
    Pre-requisites
    • TinyUmbrella
    • Blackra1n
    • 3.1.2 IPSW for the 2G iPhone from http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm
    • Pwnagetool 3.1.4 or 3.1.5
    • 2G basebaband bootloaders. We can't link to these, google for them.
    • Mac to run pwnagetool on.
    • iTunes 9.0 or higher installed


    1. Use any tool that can force your phone into recovery mode (I recommend TinyUmbrella, you can also try recboot)
    2. Open iTunes and restore to 3.1.2, this should restore without error. If you do get an error. Stop and post your restore error in a separate thread as outlined here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f137/130802.htm
    3. Run blackra1n to jailbreak. Then forget about blackra1n, do not attempt to run the blackra1n app installed on your iPhone!!!
    4. Follow the procedure here:
    5. iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.1.3 Using PwnageTool (Mac)
    6. Skip any steps that refer to DFU mode, simply option-click restore (on a mac) in iTunes and restore the custom IPSW you made with pwnagetool.


    Solution #2: (probably better described elsewhere in this thread)

    Pre-requisites
    • zip utility
    • valid IPSW for the 2G iPhone from http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm
    • Pwnagetool 3.1.4 or 3.1.5
    • 2G basebaband bootloaders. We can't link to these, google for them.
    • Mac to run pwnagetool on.
    • iTunes 9.0 or higher installed


    1. Unzip the official IPSW you downloaded to a temporary place, be sure to keep the directory structure intact.
    2. Locate the LLB file (there may be more than one in the IPSW, you should perform the same procedure on each file)
    3. Locate the corresponding AppleLogo file at the same level in the hierachy as each LLB file. Copy the applelogo file and give it same name as LLB file (that means deleting or overwriting LLB file which is OK)
    4. zip up directory structure again, name it .ipsw instead of .zip
    5. restore modified IPSW with iTunes, it should send your phone to DFU mode (and wipe iPhone in process)
    6. Follow the procedure here:
    7. iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.1.3 Using PwnageTool (Mac)
    8. When it comes to the "DFU mode" the timing is a bit tricky (as your phone is already in deliberate-semi-permanant DFU mode, just keep on trying. It's important that Pwnagetool pwns iTunes (once) before you can restore custom IPSW onto your iPhone.


    Solution #3:
    Get the damn button fixed, it's reportedly a cheap and quick 3rd party repair.
