Exclamation (HELP) Power button broken!

Hello guys!
I need something to power on phone without using a jig. A rom with working button remap to power on phone, or is there anyway to make volume + button to work when phone is turned off, and actually manage to turn it on?
I have done button remap and it only works as long as phone is turned on.

I would recommend you get a rom with volume wake. There are apps on the google play store that, the one I use is call "Button Savior".

This is assuming that you can get the phone to power up to recovery and flash a working rom. Currently using the CM 10.1 and it's working pretty well for me.

Thanks I downloaded Beanstalk because of 4.4.2 version, It included Volume button wake but. I remap the Volume key to turn on and off screen by editing the key layout files in system. I used this guide of reference: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1696526

Removed faulty switch and use a paper clip to turn on and off the phone.

Paper clip can be stored inside battery cover.
This phone is from my friend which I fixed for him.

Thanks
