    Default Iphone sleep/wake button broken

    Background info:
    i jailbroke my phone using snowbreeze (tethered) Verizon (CDMA)
    My sleep/wake button on my iphone 4 does not work it is stuck
    My iphone is dead and will not turn on because it is tethered
    I cant use ibooty to make it turn on because i cant get it into DFU mode because of the broken button

    So now my phone is in an endless loop and i cant even connect it to itunes to restore it and get rid of the jailbreak so it will turn on.
    So my question is ... is there anyway to get it into DFU mode so i can get it on again? or is there a way for me to get itunes to recognize it so that i may restore it?

    i know that apple will give me an entirely new phone because of the broken button but it is jailbroken so that voids the warranty...

    If i could just unjailbreak by restoring it maybe apple will just give me a new phone bc of the button

    Search through the forums, you can use a custom restore bundle to force the phone into DFU mode without using the home/sleep button combo. Search either for 'custom restore ramdisk' or 'DFU no home button'. Either should get you to the solution you need. If you can't get to the point where you can restore the custom restore ramdisk (because of the phone completely boot looping) you should investigate getting the home button fixed. It's a common (and fairly inexpensive, usually $20-30) repair.

    Thanks that probably would have worked... But I took it to the apple store and they gave me a new one for free even though it was in a loop which they could obviously tell it was jail broken. So I'm good I guess the button is covered in the warrenty
