    My 3GS won't boot, stucks on apple logo with round circle, sometimes restart. What happened is that some time ago home button stucked pressed and while I fixed it battery died, when I charged and tried to turn on iphone it stucks on an apple logo since. I tried to restore to custom ipsw and different iOS, but the result the same. Tried also iRecovery to set auto-boot variable true, but also didn't help. Don't know what to do. When it is stucked on apple logo with round spining circle I have full access to it with iTunes or iFunBox and can edit files. Please help me.

    try holding home and power together until it turns off, keep holding for 30 seconds, should go into recovery mode, kick itout with TinyUmbrella or redsn0w
