    This isn't really apples fault, this appears to be your fault by jailbreaking when you have no way to enter DFU or recovery. It seems as though a problem occurred while installing whitedoor (something that happened to me when I used it as well). The only way to use your phone now is to get it into DFU or recovery mode and restore, both require your power button. You could try using a guide to repair the button but that appears to be your only option at this point other than purchasing a new phone.

    You wanna talk confusing? Confusing is buying in mid 2016, a phone with a broken power button that debuted in 2008 and then decided to try and jailbreak it. Instead, maybe you could just try asking for your $12 back?

    iPhone 3G? Holy crap.

    I have a spare 3G sitting around and even my 5 year old son knows it's old as crap! He won't touch it. He says it's too slow and YouTube doesn't work.

    He's been eyeing my 6S plus once I get he iPhone 7 sometime this fall.

    He's currently pretty happy with his iPad Air 2 cellular with unlimited data.

    I don't think using an iPhone 3G in 2016 is the problem here, I mean some people doesn't need the latest and greatest, they just need a phone that can do phone calls and text messages.

    The problem here is saying that Apple is "so confusing" while you just tried to install a custom firmware that is of course not supported by the company and not recommanded if you do not have some knowledge on the subject (or have a broken power button in your case).

    Let the phone battery die completely till the phone turns off.
    And then open itunes on your computer, plug the iphone into the usb port on your computer and keep holding the home button down for 2-3 minutes while the iphone powers on or until itunes recognizes it in recovery mode.
    When the phone powers up an turns on itunes should detect it and let you restore it.
    You should see this message below.
