    Sorry I couldn't be more specific in the title, I'm just freaking out a little bit right now. I don't know what happened to my phone but I'm hoping someone can help me. This problem just happened (I'm assuming because I dropped it, but it was from like 3 feet onto carpet) and when I picked it up it said "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone". I clicked past it and slid to unlock, but now my home button doesn't work. It clicks in but it won't register. I know that it's not completely messed up because if I hold the top button and the home button for 7 seconds the phone resets. When I plug the phone into my computer it doesn't register, itunes doesn't do anything, it just says "This accessory..." on my phone and that's it. If I shut it down and then start it up again it says connect ro itunes, but that doesn't work. I can't factory reset it because I can't get itunes to recognize it. I'm kind of freaking out. Is there anywhere I can ssh into it and reset? Any ideas? Thanks guys

    Edit: on top of this it tells me I have no service. I can get wifi but no edge. Did I brick my phone just by dropping it?

    I plugged some headphones in and the AT&T logo showed up in the top left, which is good. But I'm starting to thing maybe I jarred something with the dock connector because it won't charge when I plug it into the outlet charger. Any more ideas? I can't take it to the apple store since I jailbroke it right?

    Thanks man...I'm starting to this it's shot. Like something inside disconnected. It's acting super crazy, like turning off at random times and the button on top not responding to 3 presses. If all else fails I'm gonna see if I can wipe all the 3rd party stuff off through ssh and maybe I'll get a pass. If not, I'm gonna have to pony up like 400 I guess...thanks for the help.

    Okay edit: I did some SSHing and everything is gone off my phone. I got rid of installer, I don't think there are any remnants of tinkering left on my phone. It wasn't a problem with any applications or installer because my problem is still there. My biggest issue right now is that my phone won't turn off, and since the dock doesn't connect I can't charge the thing. Everything I slide to power off it shuts down and then immediately restarts again. SHould I just let it run out of battery? I can't make it to the apple store for like a week...
