ouch... not as far as i am aware. Jailbreaking relies on getting your iPhone into DFU mode, which can only be done with a working home button.

You wouldn't want to go through the trouble of jailbreaking it if the Home button didn't work. Too many things need that button. I'd get it looked at by someone at Apple

i heard of someone replacing there home button they got the parts off ebay for cheap might be something to think about since your no longer under warranty but i would deff go to the Apple store and see how much it would cost you first

Wasn't there an old version of ZiPhone that could get your phone into DFU somehow through software? I never used it, but I remember hearing about it...
