Brick? Faulty power button? (Phone wont stay in download mode)
Hello guys, so today I decided to update my i747 ATT S3 to the latest Task650 Rom, I did as always with the exception that this time I needed to flash a file trough PDA in odin since there was a baseband update back in may. Everything was successful at this point, phone rebooted and went in to the current version of the Task650 ROM i had installed, everything worked great with the exception of my power button that once pressed instead of locking the phone would completely turn it off/trigget the power panel (shutdown,reboot...) so I booted again and powered it off. Tried to get into recovery to flash the latest build of the Task650 ROM without luck, the phone just powers off once trying to boot into recovery, tried the same thing with download mode. At first it went in and stayed in download mode successfully but then I tried to go into recovery again and the same story, went back into download mode and this time it would shut down after 3 or so seconds, sometimes lasts more but no matter what I do it shuts down and the battery has to be pulled in order for it to go into either mode.
At this point to me it looks like a sticked power button but I could be wrong. Any suggestions in order to attend this issue?
[Update] So apparently it really is my power button, wiggled with it for a bit and managed to make the phone boot into the ROM successfully...
Any suggestions on how to permanently fix this issue?
