Default S2 not booting, cannot reach recovery/download because home button does not work

Hey folks,

I have some serios sh!t over here.... I have installed a new rom and accidentally deleted the launcher3.apk (because usually I use nova) but in that moment I didnt have nova launcher installed!!!! And the phone rebooted itself since that moment I just see the boot animation for example but nothing else.

It wouldnt be a problem at all if I could just enter recovery wipe and install it again, or restore a twrp nandroid backup BUUUUUUTT my home button doesnt work! And thats why I cant boot into recovery since I cant touch the 3 buttons. Last time I went through adb commands into recovery but now adb says liste of device and there is one BUT it is offline... So when I type a command it says Error: Device Offline!

Is there a way to fix it without putting money into it?? Or do i need another LCD so I can boot into recovery with a working home button?? That would be a real real bad thing

Thanks a lot for help

Okay, someone told me a hint! You can enter the download mode also, when you are holding volume down and then connecting the device to a charger. It worked well flashed with Odin FW etc. so no problem at all LOL! Maybe this information will help someone other. Please close the thread.
