    My jailbroken ipod touch 2G is stuck on the apple logo, i can't force resore or reboot because my home button is broken... is there an easy way to fix the home button or could I use a program on the computer to force reboot? iTunes doesn't recognize the ipod because it doesn't fully boot up... what can I do???

    He can't restore because iTunes don't recognize the iPod.
    I've been looking for a solution to this problem on many forums but all they said is to put it in DFU mode. But it is impossible to enter DFU mode without the home button

    No.

    The iPod won't boot so Activator cannot be used.

    I found the only way to fix this was a simple solution...
    I now have a 3rd gen iPod Touch.
