DFU mode with Broken home button
I have a peculiar situation with an iPhone 3G in that the Home button is broken so I cannot perform the button combination to get the phone into DFU mode to jailbreak.
I want to jailbreak so I can install SBSettings and/or iHome in cydia so I can workaround this broken home button. Only problem is - can't get into DFU mode.
Does anyone know how to put the phone into DFU mode without using the home button? Maybe a software tool?
Thanks in advance!
Also, I've tried taking the phone apart and using a different home button but it looks like the connection on the board is fried. Apple wants $200 to fix it (replace the phone with a new one). I don't need a home button if I have iHome or SBSettings installed.
