Thumbs up [TUT] Turn on phone without power button. [Broken power button] (HARDWARE)

Quick explanation
Ok so i had the bootloop problem with my Infuse , i fixed it by opening my phone and playing with the power button hardware.
I accidently broke the power button , I looked for hours for a way to turn on my phone with out a power button with no success until i found tried this:


TUTORIAL STARTS HERE

1. Enter Download mode by holding both volume rockers and inserting a USB cable while still holding

2. Get to the screen that asks you if continue with Download Mode or not.

3. Remove USB cable and click the 2nd option.

4. Phone will restart and that's how you turn on a phone with no power button.

Hope it helped some people.

you can also try to use the volume button parts to replace the power button...or order a new power button

I think only Samsung uses "Download Mode". LG probably has Fastboot like most other Android devices (Vol-Dn + Pwr). But you can try it - it won't hurt.
