iphone buttons not working

Well, you wouldn't believe it but whilst looking in the headphone socket with a screwdriver I managed to push it right though and now none of the top buttons work (power, mute and volume). Doh! So I'm going to replace the earpeice but I need to power down the device.

The only place you can do this is by installing a cyndia program. I found BossPrefs but doesn't work on IOS 4. It was replaced with SBSettings. Just swipe your finger across the top of the screen and you get more options!! Amazing!

Netboot services "greyed out"

Services and/or Sharing greyed out:

The Netboot or other service list items in Server Admin Computers & Services column may be dimmed ("grayed out"). Dimmed items cannot be administered in Server Admin.

   1. On the affected server, quit Server Admin.
   2. Delete the /var/servermgrd/ directory.
   3. In Terminal, execute this command:

      sudo launchctl stop

   4. Restart Server Admin.

Also, if Netboot still isn't working:

sudo killall mountd

sudo rm /var/db/mountdtab

sudo mountd
