    Exclamation Needs to get in DFU mode - broken home button - stuck on apple screen

    I need anyones help right now.
    So here is the lowdown:
    I have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS running 4.2.1. Since it is tethered, i am forced to boot from redsn0w because I also have Winterboard installed which prevents the device from booting; just staying at the apple logo screen. To boot from redsn0w, you must put the device in DFU mode. <--- Thats my problem. The home button is not functional.
    I have experience with fixing iPhones so i carefully went into the device while it was turned on (because it cannot turn off because it is basically bricked at the apple logo screen) and tried to fix the home button by simply bending the connectors up a little. Yet, that did not work. I can also not do what seems to be the most popular alternative of venturing through the firmware, changing some files around, and restoring it with that firmware. This is because my device is not recognized on the computer because it is stuck at the apple logo screen.
    So, all I am looking for is a way to get my iPhone into DFU mode without using the home button.
    Please help!! It will be greatly appreciated.

    Your only solution is to replace hardware to get the home button working again.
