I've looked everywhere but can't seem to find a working solution. My IPhone's power button doesn't work and I can't put it in DFU mode to jailbreak. Any suggestions?

NOTE: THIS IS FOR WINDOWS Download this ,extract it somewhere convenient, such as C:/ on search (or run, depending which OS you are running) type in c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu The phone's screen should turn white, or black. And then BAM in DFU mode.

To enter DFU you need that button. To enter recovery mode you can use some type of software like TinyUmbrella..

Try holding in the home button, and plugging it into your computer. I think that works...

Contrast to what those people said, you can't. You need that power button to go to DFU mode. I suggest getting the part and fixing it yourself, if you're out of warranty. Amazon is a good place to look for your device's flex cable.
