    So my girlfriends home button broke and she wants a restore done, is this possible? I know I can restore through iTunes, but won't my only option be to go to 3.0 which costs money?

    Note: She has a iPod Touch 1g if it matters.

    Edit: Got it into DFU mode (somehow) and now it is restoring.

    If the home button was broke, why did you want to restore it? It's likely a hardware problem.

    Or was it Jailbroken and you needed to take it back to apple?

    I've looked. Where is it located, or what is it called? Please. Thanks.

    Edit: Downloaded 'Close Button Widget'. Lets hope it works.
