    No, no other way. If you really need to restore it, turn it off and put it in restore mode by holding home while plugging it in.

    try downloading iphuc or iRecovery. I forget the command to enter DFU but it can do it. if i remember right

    EDIT: Found this on the internet
    Alternate Method: Going Into DFU Mode Without Button Pushing: (on windows) Easier than timing the buttons just right!

    1.) First download the required archive http://www.sendspace.com/file/93fx93 (the file is attached)

    2.) Extract the archive to the root of your hard drive, should be C:/DFU/

    3.) Connect your iPhone and ignore iTunes

    4.) Goto Start – run

    5.) Next type in “c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu”

    6.) Wait for iPhone to show a “white” screen

    7.) Now you may proceed to downgrade!

    Don't know if this applies to 3.1 tho

    It didn't find "c:/dfu/dfu iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu"

    are the files located in c:\DFU ? if not, this is where they need to be to run the command properly. if the file got extracted to somewhere else you need to type
    [drive]:\[path of directory] iBSS.m68ap.RELEASE.dfu
    where drive is the drive letter (A, B, C or whatever) and path is the location of the extracted directory...... assuming this works, i don't want to put my ipod into DFU right now.

    Oh crap, aren't some jailbreaking programs that makes it enter temporarily in DFU automatically?
