Hey guys. So I was just given an Iphone 3G for free from my friend. The power button is broke. So, when I got the iphone I wanted to erase all contents. So, I did this. Now the phone is stuck in a loop. It shows the apple logo, then turns off, then does that again. I know that this is because the Operating System has been deleted, and that I need to enter DFU mode to be able to restore this in itunes. Is there any other way that I can restore this iphone (and have it be recognized by itunes) other than using the power button? What if I just let the phone die? edit: I found a program called recboot. Will this put my iphone into DFU/recovery mode, so I can do a restore through itunes?
