    Default 1st JB Attempt - 3G on 3.1.3

    8GB 3G iPhone 3.1.3 | FW: 5.12.01
    OSX 10.6.2
    iTunes 9.0.3
    PWNageTool 3.1.5

    I've never jailbreaked before because I really didn't feel the need to, but my Home Button finally went completely dead (Tried lots to fix it). My friend told me there was a great Cydia app that uses gestures to replace the need for a Home Button (That works for me rather than dropping $200 on a replacement). Powering off and on to switch apps is getting quite tedious.

    I've tried the PWNageTool by pointing to the 3.1.3 restore and creating the custom build a few times. When I try to restore the custom .ipsw in iTunes, it doesn't work.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't work because the phone has never been PWNed before. But since my Home Button is broken, I couldn't enter the DFU in the PWNageTool.

    I don't need to unlock, just jailbreak. If anyone has any advice, I'd really appreciate it. I've tried for hours on my own but finally need to turn to the experts on the matter. Thanks to anyone who thinks they could help.

    See: DFU mode with broken home button this thread explains how to deliberately corrupt the LLB in order to force DFU mode.
