    Red face Upgrade & Unlock iPhone w/broken Home button??

    Dear all,

    I got hold of an iPhone 1G/2G (what's the difference I ask myself?) that features a broken Home button. I know of Summerboard and the Close App extension, but first of all I'd like to upgrade it. It's on 1.1.3 as of now and yes, I got it cheap, that why I bother using it.

    All Upgrade, Unlock and so forth actions involve DFU mode which is clearly out of the way having no Home button. Any ideas, please? I have access to Macs/Win PCs ...

    Thanks for your input!

    I believe that ziphone.org had a utility to put the iPhone in DFU.

    Thumbs up

    Thank you. I had a look on ziphone.org and some random rants here about Ziphone, leading me to let off Ziphone completely. Instead, I went the hard way and opened the iPhone, dismantling it completely. Brushing off residues of dust and tobacco leaves, wiping the connector coming from the lower part of the phone with a cotton tab dipped in detergent, the phone seems to work well again!

    I'm just now waiting for the replacement battery to finish it all off.
