Jailbreak 4.0 - Apple logo reboot/no home button/can't restore
My ipod touch 2g is on the infinite apple logo reboot (I ran the Erase All Settings option while jailbroken :fail). The problem is that my home button does not function (a resistor burnt out while I had the ipod open to clean the screen, hence not being able to go into recovery mode. see picture: http://i34.tinypic.com/dwcjz7.jpg Everything had been functioning fine.
Itunes does not recognize it, nor does it come up as a USB device (it does charge it though). Am I out of luck trying to restore it with the broken home button? Is there a way to fix that broken resistor? Can I somehow bridge the connection so I can trigger the home button to get it into DFU?
