    Ok, so its a iphone 4 with 5.x on it, not 100% what number it has, but it has an untethered jailbreak. So the sleep wake button is jammed, and can't use. and the phone is unresponsive with the home button. It wont light up(turn on). The screen is off and seems like the phone is off. I just plugged it into my computer and I can see it via the windows explorer. Like I can get my photos off. The weird this is that its not coming up in itunes. (my itunes is working fine all my other phones/ipads coming up)

    How can I maybe reset the phone with out it in itunes or sleep/wake button? Pull the battery out?

    My lock button jammed to, but if you press it really hard it responds.

    I'd leave your phone for a while and let it run out of battery, then hold the home button, and connect it to your computer whilst holding the home button to put it into recovery mode.

    If not, you could always go to a phone repair shop and they probably won't charge you much to unjam your lock button?
