    Just curious.....because my sleep/wake button is inoperable, and yesterday I had an app freeze up the screen inputs. Everything else on the phone is working fine. I can receive calls....can't answer them because the screen inputs jacked.....I can with my blue tooth it still acts like a phone I just can't make calls.

    Is there a way to force a reboot via USB?

    Is there a way to do just a restore without installing the 3.1.3 firmware and losing my jealbreak??

    Or am I just screwed and have to wait out the battery. I didn't originally think it would take this long, but apparently its going to....Normally be noon, I'm at like 35-40% on a fresh overnight charge.....But last night I didn't plug it in in hopes it would be drained by morning.....Not so was only at like 80%.....even now, it's 59%......

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You can get it replaced at Apple if you're still under Applecare warranty.
    If not they'll charge you $200 or you can find a shop that would do it for around $30.
