    Ok so today at work i dropped my 3gs off a very high roof. Now my home button is broken and my phone wont sync with itunes. I figure if i put the phone into DFU mode itunes will recognize my phone..any way to do this without a home button

    You can do it software wise, but you would need jailbroken iPhone, which you can't achieve because of broken button.

    Even if u could, putting a broken iPhone that fell from a roof into dfu mode will not magically fix the phone components that broke from the impact.

    There is not a way to enter hardware DFU mode without using hardware buttons.
