Anybody up for a challenge? My phone has only given me problems the past several months, and now it's currently stuck in a boot loop on build 16. Apparently restarting my phone was a bad idea, as that's all I did to set off this problem. The best part of my situation: The power button is broken, it has been for a couple months now. I remapped my volume keys to wake/unlock my phone, and the search/magnifying glass would lock it.
Here's what my phone can do at the moment: It can turn on, get to the AT&T screen, and get stuck in the ICS boot animation. It can charge with that green battery icon and the five dots below it. I was also able to get it into recovery (once), but I can't select anything because my power button is broken.
When it started giving me this issue last night, I just let it run until the battery died this morning. It didn't help. I'd love to have a somewhat usable phone again, does anybody have any idea on what I can do here?
EDIT: I accidentally got it into download mode somehow, so that must be a good thing.
