Unhappy [Q] solve bootloop? [EXTREME!]

Hi! I've got a sticky situation here, my g3 is in a bootloop, not the normal bootloop, i'm in a "yup, you're f***ed" situation. Lets start here shall we?
The condition of my phone currently:
  • Volume buttons broken (not able to get into recovery/download mode)
  • Stuck at "GT-I5800" logo
  • Adb says no device connected (not being able to get into recovery/download mode, AGAIN)

Maybe i'm too ambitious but can my device be saved?

I think it's time to replace your phone if half the buttons are broken :|

I already have, i bricked the g3 like 2 months ago, tried to fix myself but can't so i'm asking for advice here. I like my gio though, i'm just striving to revive my old friend that taught me almost everything i know about android today.

Not really, my adb doesn't recognize the g3, it works fine with my gio though

I've visited a friend that repairs phones, he says it's no use to try fix the volume keys, they are broken from the mainboard.
