Iphone 2G Stuck in Restore Mode. Please Help

A little background information: Yesterday i left home and i had my iphone charging on my bed, when i came home , it was on the floor and working fine, but the home button was not working, although everything else was.

So i decided to try and restore to see if it was a software issue. When i restored it i kept getting a itunes-20 error and, so i kept restoring it. After about the 4th time, itunes no longer recongnized it anymore.

Now it is stuck in restore mode an i have tried everything.
I have reinstalled itunes.
Restarted it, everything.

I dont belive i can enter DFU mode because the home button is not working.

I want to bring it into the apple store, but i can not because it is jailbroken, and i need to restore it before hand

Please, if anyone can help, it will be much appreciated!

I have decided im going to go to the apple store.

quick question!

i restored it earlier i belive not sure if it finished or not,

but now when it restarts the pineapple no longer comes up, i just shows the apple logo and goes straight to restore mode.

does this mean it is no longer jailbroken?
