    Question How to reinstall with broken sleep/power button.

    I have a iPhone 2G with broken sleep/power button. It doesen't work at all. I would like to instal 2.2.1 but as the button is broken I can't put my phone in DFU mode.

    Any suggestions?

    Just out of curiosity why are you trying to install a firmware update on a broken phone?

    I can't install any apps from AppStore.

    I am looking over the internet to find a good place to buy that button. I could replace it myself.

    Why do you need to go into DFU mode? If it's allready pwned, just do a normal shift+restore to a custom firmware (no need for the power/sleep button).

    my iphone's sleep button is broken too. I'm going to try this method, that I got from iphonealley:


    Is your iPhone acting up? Yes it's true, iPhones have problems too. But what can you do when it's REALLY messed up? If iTunes doesn't see your iPhone's cry for help, you may need to invoke recovery mode. Although it's an extremely helpful mode, how to get there isn't very apparent. Read on for the how-to!

    As arcane as "recovery mode" sounds, it's actually very simple:

    Disconnect your iPhone and turn it off by holding the "Sleep/Wake" button for about five seconds and then sliding the red slider. If your iPhone is already off, there's no need to turn it on and then off again. Once it's off, press and hold the "Home" button and plug your iPhone into a Mac or PC with iTunes installed. Keep holding the "Home" button until you see a dock cable pointing to the iTunes icon. iPhones running older software will display a yellow triangle and text which says "Please Connect to iTunes". Once you see this image, you can release the Home button

    Both broken sleep/power button and broken home button - the force DFU by corrupting LLB method can be used on 2G and 3G iPhones. There is a thread on this. http://www.hackint0sh.org/f206/80193.htm
