The power button has broken on my iPhone

I followed the guide here How To: Jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch Or iPad With Broken Buttons Using RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 [Windows] and downloaded RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 and read about the DFU IPSW here

at the end when the iPhone booted into DFU mode I sucessfully jailbroke it with RedSn0w 0.9.14b2

but following the jailbreak the iPhone still boots into DFU so I am unable to use it.

Details: iPhone 4 GSM 16GB iOS 5.1.1

Redsn0w dfu is only to prepare the device to go into pwned dfu and then accept a prejailbroken custom ipsw. You can make a prejailbroken custom ipsw using sn0wbreeze 2.9.6.

You use the dfu ipsw then restore a custom ipsw thats already jailbroken (sn0wbreeze or pwnage tools)
