The power button of my FP1 died a few weeks ago but I fortunately found precious advices here and installed an app to make my screen light from pressing volume buttons - only if the phone was already switched on.
It has worked until my battery came to 0% today. Do you know a solution to boot my phone without using the (dead) power button at all (i.e. volume buttons only or a boot app on Mac/PC)? I didn’t find anyone here, but maybe I missed something.
Just for you to know:
- My battery works well. It has already been changed as it was bloating.
- I already changed my power button once because it didn’t work anymore. I followed the steps described here, the new button was soldered by a repair shop in Paris and has worked for more than 6 months until today. Which leads me to a second question: do you think I should buy a new power switch and solder it for the second time? Or maybe it’s time to buy a new motherboard or a new phone?
Thanks a lot for your help!
