    I have read a lot of people complaining that their power button has broken. I am rooted and if my power button breaks is there a way I can boot into recovery to unroot it to exchange it at verizon?

    Do a battery pull. Then put battery back in plug into wall charger. Hold x as it powers up. Should work. Or try rom manager and boot into recovery that way.
