How to fix some mysterious problems.

So here's the thing, i was in ipsw 4.2.1 in my iphone 3G, and i've read that if i want to be able to unlock it with ultrasn0w i'll need baseband 6.15, since i was having 5.15. So i followed the tutorials from the website and everything went perfect but when rebooted the iphone got stucked into the apple logo. The interesting part here is that i'm not able to put the phone into DFU mode manually, this is because my Hold button it's broken, so i did all the things above with the WTF Mode, but now, i can't even get the phone to be recognized by the PC, so not even far to get it in to a restauration mode, i've tried unplugging the batterie, connecting it again and connecting to the usb cable, and when it turns on, hold the home button, but nothing. What can i do? UPDATE: So right now, i bought the power button, and i'm capable to turn it on by itself (but not turning it off), but still cannot get in to DFU or Recovery, the best i can get it's turn off the device (aparently because i can still see the lcd "on" but with 0% bright [hard to see]) holding power+home button for 10 sec, but nothing further. If i put in that state and then try DFU, nothing, and if in some point i'm not capable of doing it anymore with cable connected i have to do it unplugged and the ngo back to plugged. I have tried in 2 different computers. I will preciatte a lot, but seriously a lot if someone can bring me a straight logical, helpfull answear.
