It's a really bad idea to flash the Cappy with a broken power button as it is entirely dependent on it to recover from a bad flash. I would suggest looking into cleaning it and/or replacing it before going through with flashing.

As for flashing GB, you can do it through the OTA updater and you could simply root it afterward by flashing Corn kernel with Odin. That is if you're not looking for a custom ROM.
