hello.

my power button on my galaxy s2 is not functioning properly. I think what happened was it got pushed too many times over the year and now its jammed, causing it to resent itself and glitch randomly at times.


I want to permantly disable the hardware power button. I've tried several apps but not seem to permanently disable it as it occasional still works sometimes. (my phone at random still resets itself)

Apps I've tried

xposed + xposed additions (to remap keys)
button remap app




Anything else I can do? I was thinking about just trying to pry to home key out of its socket but that seems a bit silly..

if u cant, try adding soft buttons to your phone. that would give you a workable solution.
