Problem is the power button doesn't work, and the flashing fails. It looks like the flashing fails because the phone isn't unlocked. To unlock, I need the power button. Kinda stuck.

the golden contacts on the power button / mobo could be damaged, do a little short till phone turns on

touch in both pins, something that passes electric current(like a yarn,wires, copper wire, something that passes electrical current).its basicly what the power button does.
