G'day there everyone.

My problem is as the title describes.

To add more pain to the equation, My phone's power button has been non-functional for some time now, so I cannot for the life of me get the phone into DFU mode.

My computer is also not recognising the phone, so forcing it into DFU through the computer appears not to be an option either...

HELP!

Ouch. I'm not sure there's anything you can do without a function power button. Maybe let the battery run down, and hope that breaks the cycle?

I'm not sure if they still work, but you could try using one of the programs that puts the device in DFU mode without the home and power buttons.
