Hey gregdudds and wolfi, I used the latest redsn0w and I used the recovery fix option and I got it out, but what I had to do was do the recovery fix, and then it went into recovery mode, and I unplugged and let the screen go blank, then I plugged my phone into the computer for about 2 seconds and unplugged it and it booted, but the home button and lock button still don't work, but I use the assistive touch and I keep the auto lock feature on none, but it kills my battery because the screen is always on.

Op here, UPDATE

It booted and works fine, but the home and lock button are not working now, the volume/vibrate works so it's not the flex cables, and the mic, speakers and lightning port work fine, so its not any broken/torn cables.

After replacement of an audio button/power button, i've had the same problem.

redsn0w with unplugging after 2 seconds from reboot worked for me, but Home and Power were not responding. I still can't fix it, but have found the root of a problem:

disconnection of the battery cable from logic board without turning the device off.

For Me, This Issue Indicated A Problem With The Power/Volume Flex Cable. Nothing Looked Physically Wrong With It, But Upon Replacing It, Everything Booted Up And Resolved Perfectly. Upon Trying Other Solutions To Exit Recovery Mode, I Just Kept Getting A Loop. However, Upon Replacing This Flex Cable, It Works!
