So I've tried a ton of different stuff to get this iphone out of recovery mode. When I first got the iphone, it was booted and looked normal except the home button didn't work. It is running IOS 5.1, and when I plugged it into a computer, it went into recovery mode. So I've made coustom IPSW's using snowbreaze, and tried restoring from those in DFU mode. It took some doing to get it into DFU mode seeing as how the home button is broken. I get all kinds of random errors, and a few times it will say its restored from the coustom ipsw but when the phone resets it goes right back into recovery mode. Any ideas or threads you could point me to?! This is driving me nuts. Most recently, after getting frustrated by trying to use coustom ipsw's and it not working I tried the default itunes restore and I get this error message "The Iphone "iphone" could not be restored, an unknown error occured (1)"
