How to fix some mysterious problems.

My device iPhone 3GS iOS 6.1.6 Has stuck in active start It's has broken power button . I made dfu Ipsw by redsn0w But I can't restor because iTunes don't show any thing useful . Just say ( active you device using sim ) So I can't restore by iTunes , there is any thing can restore to my custom dfu ipsw

I recommend that you get your power button fixed once and for all.

Yup, it's recommended. But if his Home Button is working it's not necessary for a restore.

Put your device in Recovery mode. Connect your iPhone to iTunes, then press and keep holding the Home Button until the iTunes connect screen shows up.

Now iTunes will only give you one option, to Restore. Hold Shift (Alt on Mac) and click Restore. Select your DFU IPSW.
