Default swipe or double tap to unlock

My power button is starting to fail. What ROM do you recommend that has swipe or double tap to unlock? Also, how is the battery consumption on those?

Any suggestion too in powering the phone without holding the power button? Like say holding the volume button before plugging in the charger would make it boot. Is there anything like that?

I am currently unrooted and using stock (just got updated too). Any thoughts is appreciated.

Mahdi ROM is good, and boot level hardware remapping is almost impossible and would require reconfiguring the wires. Sorry bro

I use Hellscore, and it has swipe to lock/unlock. Quite simple to use too. And as for the power-on part, that would require rewiring the phone itself. IMHO it would be cheaper to get the faulty power button itself replaced.

Yea, I would like to have it replaced too but I'm on a long term volunteering work outside my country and I can't leave for the next 9 months, hence the question. I don't trust the courier too so yea.. Anyhow, I remember back in my myTouch 4G days after installing custom recovery it would power on whenever I plug it. It turns out as a bug on the new recovery which was quickly patch on the next version. I never thought I would want a bug on my phone this bad. Haha

Anyway, thanks for all the suggestions!

Just fix the button bro.
if you're here on XDA you probably love your N4, you should fix it, shouldn't be a very expensive fix.
