    Default How to enter DFU mode/Unlock Phone?... when the Power/Sleep button is broken

    I bought a 4gb iPhone and unlocked it a long time ago when the first methods of unlocking came out. Haven't done anything else since with new firmwares but during this time my Power button had stopped working.

    So I gave my iPhone to a friend so he can update it and install some apps on it. He was confident that he would be able to do everything even if the Power button didn't work.

    Well it turns out he was wrong and now I have an iPhone that is in recovery mode (Wire to iTunes screen)

    I installed 7.5 iTunes to try to recover to 1.1.4 but it gives me error 20. I've tried using ZiPhone to put it in DFU mode. Anyone have ideas of what I can do?

    Anyone know how to get this phone working again with the Sleep/Power button not working? Like can I make it enter DFU mode through some SSH command on the computer or something.

    hello there, I have searched many different forums and still have yet to find a solution. I've also tried that alternative method and it produced no results for me or anyone else for that matter.

    ahh thanks for the link. Thats the method that everyone keeps referring to but I have not seen one person who has confirmed that it works. I tried it and it doesn't do anything. Maybe its an outdated method but I really had my hopes up when I first saw that.

    If it's hardware related this seems to be a dead end if you're at >2.X software.
    The only chance seems to be replacing the On/Off circuitry in your case.

    I have a couple of cases where after water exposure now the logic board doesn't enters to DFU, also when it's turned off it doesn't turn on unless you connect it to external power. Also it doesnt resets.
    It's really annoying. I'm studying this problem, but as I don't have too much time to spend on it, it would be great if someone has info that wants to share. Thanks.

    Question DFU mode broken Power button.

    Hi! I wanted to update my 2.1 iPhone 2G to 2.2! Updated in iTunes and opened QuickPwn. I cant put my phone in DFU mode because my Power button is broken... Sometimes it works but sometimes it doesent. I tried to put it in DFU for like an hour. I tried to put it in DFU with the software method (http://limitededitioniphone.com/how-...into-dfu-mode/) but when I started the c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu QuickPwn gave me an error and was forced to quit!
    Can anyone help me somehow?

    I am facing a similar issue - my sleep/wake button is not working, and I was Pwned at 2.2 before that. I made the foolish mistake of restoring back to 2.2 to see if its a software issue, but now I'm relocked, unactivated at 2.2.

    I tried the limitededition iphone method mentioned above, but as they say, it's not working. I tried restoring to 1.1.4 by downgrading itunes to 7.5 but I get error 20 with the stock 1.1.4 firmware file from Apple.

    So, we'd GREATLY appreciate it if there is a "software DFU" utility - ZiPhone 3.0 doesn't work, iLiberty+ didn't work either - they just put the phone in regular recovery mode, not DFU.

    Thanks!
