    iOS 7 deactivated my iPhone. I can't restore my iPhone because my sleep button is broken. All the help articles show that you need the iPhone to show up in iTunes, and it doesn't. Do I need to wait on the iPhone's battery to die, and will holding the home button when it's powering up allow me to restore? What can I do?

    Try using TinyUmbrella to enter DFU mode so you can restore to iOS 6.

    TinyUmbrella lets you enter DFU mode. Download ikt and plug your phone in then click Enter DFU mode.
