Moving forward with no power button????
Hi, I am new to the forum however i am aware that this subject has been bounced around for a while, yet i do not know of any actual solution, if one even exists..
I am running with a Iphone 3G i lost my 3GS long story.. anyway my 3G is running 4.2.1 my problem is i have no power button, as a result i cannot get to DFU mode to jailbreak. Not only that but as i cannot reach DFU mode i cannot downgrade.
I have tried using the software that allow the user to use iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu i have even located the iBSS#####.dfu that matches my phone, but i have had no success. I even tried the renaming of the iBSS as this did nothing at all.
I would appreciate any ideas??
I've answered this before:

- Downgrade to iOS 3.1.2 and use blackra1n to pwn the phone. Then restore your desired OS via pre-jailbroken custom IPSW (won't work with 4.1 or 4.2.1)
