Default [Q] Booting into Recovery Mode with Broken Home Button?

I recently swapped motherboards with another Galaxy S3, and my home button has been non-responsive. Today, I made the choice to switch roms to Pac Man rom, and unfortunately it wasn't correctly installed onto my device. Settings isn't responding, neither is the Android system in general. I tried to boot into custom recovery, but I realized I cannot with a broken home button. Any way I can use an outside source to boot into recovery or download mode?

you can use rom manager or goo manager they will boot into recovery.

there is also an app in the playstore called something like quick boot will also work
