    Default unlock / jailbreak 2g phone with broken power button

    I've searched for the answers but cant find any that have been successful for anyone.
    I have a 2g iphone that is just showing me the connect to itunes symbol and saying there is no sim card installed.
    The power button does not work so I dont know how to get into dfu mode.
    The phone has never been unlocked or jailbroken before.
    I got it from a classmate who had it on AT&T.
    Is there anyway to unlock and jailbreak without the power button?
    I have a mac running leopard if that helps.
    Thanks.

    Default me too

    this same thing is with my iphone
    my power button doesnt work but i was happy as it was unlocked to work in canada but my mom updated the phone to os 3 and it relocked the iphone so now when i put sim it says it not supported and i cant even go to my main page on iphone and i cant even jailbreak/unlock it because i can go in dfu mode ((

    it would be awesome if theres a program that puts iphone in dfu automatically instead of pressing power n home button

    what version of redsn0w do you have? only versions 0.7.2 - 0.8 work with 3.0

    did you buy or download 3.0???

    As far as I know, there is no program that works with 3.0 iPhone OS to put a phone into DFU mode. This was possible for 2G phones in the 1.x iPhone OS days.

    However MuscleNerd from devteam discovered you can force a phone into DFU mode by uploading a deliberately corrupted IPSW. http://twitter.com/MuscleNerd/status/3211746820

    This only will work if you are on Mac OS X with 10.5.7 and jailbreak using pwnagetool. It DOES NOT WORK with redsn0w. You will screw your phone (possibly permanently) if you use this method to get into DFU and then use redsn0w to jailbreak.

    It works with 2G and 3G phones, other models probably won't work. (might work on 1st gen touch)

    Details are in the following thread, I would recommend you read it fully before trying this. DFU mode with Broken home button - Page 4 - Hackint0sh

    Default Smille... I found it!

    I found a very easy way to put it in DFU… but only worked on my wintel laptop and it didn’t work on my mac mini neither to my macbook.

    My iphone 2g was in the death logo screen, I was about to give up... EUREKA!!!

    1) plug it on an electric outlet and leave the iphone on power on for 1mim.
    2) remove from the outlet and plug in a wintel USB and hold home button for about 50 secs(until the iphone resets)
    3) keep holding(about 15 secs) the home button until it gets to DFU.

    I made a YouTube video showing and telling you how to do this. Here is the link: YouTube - Jailbreak/Unlock iPhone 2G 3.1.3 with Broken Home/Power Button.
