    Default Broken home button & iphone not booting

    Hi guys,
    I am new to this forum. I have iphone 3G, 3.1.2, blackrain jailbroken, windows vista. My home button does not work. I was trying to install some applications using cyder. After installation my iphone was rebooting but it got stuck in the apple logo file and now it does not start. Everytime i try to start it gets stuck on the apple logo screen & then the screen goes blank again. Itunes is also not recognizing my iphone. I guess i need to put my iphone in DFU mode but i cant use the button combination as my home button is broken. Could anyone help me to restore my iphone without using home button.

    Kindly help

    Every fix I can think of requires that you have a working home button. You are not entirely clear about what happens when the screen goes blank, does the iPhone power off or restart and show the apple logo again?

    Well actually every time I try to start my phone using power button at top, it just shows black screen with apple logo for 10 secs and then the iphone turns off. Itunes is also not able to recognize my iphone (otherwise & also while trying to turn it on).
    Is there some other way around or do i have to get my home button replaced and then only i could restore it?

    Okay.. sounds like you have the problem caused by Rock screwing up some key system updates.

    A program called: b33jsn0w will likely fix your problem. The thing is - it can no longer be found on the net
