I am stuck in soft dfu mode on iphone 4 on ios 5.0.1. It has a broken power button. My understanding was, I could enter soft dfu mode using the ipsw and then the pwned dfu mode using redsnow. But redsnow doesn't let me enter now and I am stuck in the soft dfu mode. I tried restoring to ios 6.0 but itunes throws error 1600 on that.

I have blobs saved for all versions. I need to either get out of dfu mode or restore to ios 6.0.

Can you guys please help me. Thanks in advance.

Disconnect your battery or wait for it to discharge.
