ipod touch help please

I have just bought an ipod touch 1g from a car boot sale which has a faulty power button.

I tried updating the firmware in case it was a software issue but no luck fixing it.
I've heard there is an app in the Cydia market that can be used as a work around to a power off button but would need to jailbreak the ipod first.

Does anybody know how I can jailbreak the ipod without using the power button? Is there a reset button in any of the settings menus I can use maybe?

if it wasn't registered already with apple then register it and send it away for repair.....they are pretty good for that if its an apple fault rather than a user fault :-)

spirit will jailbreak it and you don't need to use the power button, it works in a similar manner to blackra1n

Checked and it has been registered before. It's the 1st gen so the warranty is long gone.
