My son broke the power button on his 2013 One Mini and it only works intermittently now... is there a way to make the Volume keys wake up the device? If not, is there a ROM I can install that will provide an alternative method for waking the device?

Thank you very much. Will I be able to install the ROM without being able to use the power button to turn on the device? He now says it's not even intermittently working. Is there a way to turn it on with ADB or some other method if it wasn't already rooted?

can use adb and fastboot commands to reboot, reboot to recovery, reboot to bootloader but if phone powers down completely then i think your stuck. good luck!
If it's already stuck in powered off state, connect to pc and disconnect soon as you see charging notification, it should boot... Maybe!

Insertcoin supports volume key wake.

Thanks... not sure if I'm going to be able to install a custom ROM though since I can't turn it on and it wasn't already rooted. Will have to experiment with it.
