I have a friend that remapped his power button to the home button (his power button had become unresponsive due to heavy use). The thing is, a few days after that, his phone suddenly shut down and wouldn't turn on.

The question is, the usual way to reboot into recovery is volume up + power + home, but in this case there is no power button and the home button is acting as the power button, so essentially we only have two buttons to work with

I know its a long shot, but does anyone have any suggestions? Are there any alternative ways to get into recovery?

Thanks guys

I think you can by using adb reboot recovery. I can't remember the exact command. Google might be able to help more than I can in that regard.

Hastily spouted for your befuddlement
