    If you cant pressed the home button then your screwed. If you can fix your home button, what you need to do is press and hold the home and lock buttons until it shuts off, turns on again, and shuts off again. Then you can go through the normal dfu mode procedures. It works everytime for me on my 4th gen.

    Use redsn0w, select iOS 6.0 firmware, and click on pwned dfu mode.
