Title:

Stuck @ apple logo. No power button, itunes won't detect...

Text:

Soooo I am attempting an iPhone 3G challenge with my buddy, and I dusted off my old 3G and decided to factory reset it... forgetting that I had jailbroken it a long time ago... Needless to say it bricked the phone. I am stuck at the apple logo.

Normally, I would DFU the phone and restore it, but I am unable to... My power button is broken.

I've tried to let the battery die and plugged it into the USB on my computer and held the home button until it turned on, and for about 30 seconds after the apple logo came back on... but it still wouldn't go into DFU or Recovery mode.

Any ideas on what I can do? I'm starting to think I may be forced to fix the power button but really don't want to... lol
