    Hey Everyone,

    I am desperately in need of help. Here is my situation.

    I have iPhone 3G on SW3.01
    The power button stopped working a while ago but I was always charging it in time and surviving with the use of Home Button only. Today, I wanted to Jailbreak it so I tried Ra1n software which puts your phone into recovery mode before jailbreaking so it did. It was probably unable to jailbreak so the software froze however my phone was in recovery mode and since the power button doesn't work, I had no way to kick it out of that mode. I tried LIB program to get it out of Recovery loop but no luck...iTunes was not recognizing it so I left the phone alone for a bit and battery died...

    Now I plug it into power charger or computer, the screen shows no activity... Is there any way to get it going without getting the power button fixed for now ????

    All the help is appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance

    Have you tried the hard reset - holding the sleep+home button together for 15 seconds or so until the Apple logo appears. This normally cures this type of problem which is going to occur from time to time. All computers crash from time to time.
