    recovery w/ broken buttons.

    hey... question to all that know.

    is there a way to reboot to recovery with a broken power button?. my phone is rooted and i wanted to change my boot animations and install a custon rom... my phone was wet a while ago now the power/lock button and "volume down"on the rocker does not work. i was told i needed these buttons to do a flash recovery.

    anyone know a method to get around this?

    all insight is appreciated. thanks in advance

    Yes. But why would you risk it?

    well...im not aware of the risk.
    i changed my boot animation fronm thye red eye to the android stock using a free app. but i cant change back. i called my geek friend and he said " you have to do a flash recovery."

    i went through the motions and found out i need my volume and power buttons. i called him back and he reffered me here...


    so i guess im stuck with my current animation and no way to install custom roms? which is fine, but im a lil' disappointed.

    i can power up from just pluggin in to my USB/wall charger...been doing that since its been wet.
    powering up isnt the problem...its getting to recovery mode...the options are controlled by the buttons (the only buttons) on my phone that do not work.


    was wondering if i could bypass or take another route

    Download rom manager flash cwm if you haven't already,and there is an option to boot into recovery.

    I understand this. However if you power up from that state, you can't get into bootloader if you ever need to sbf your phone.

    If you have issues flashing a ROM, I don't know that you will make it out, or it will make it out alive.

    ...and with that being said...i think i will leave well enough alone. Im satisfied just overclocking, changing fonts, deleting stock apps and all the little stuff i can do. Im new to it and cant afford to experiment. Thanks guys for all of the insight. Im very grateful.
