General :: Galaxy Nexus - Any Way To Backup Without Power Button?

Jun 7, 2012

So i broke the screen on my Galaxy Nexus.

I also broke the power button (flex ribbon) at the same time.

I am told that the technicians will wipe the hard drive when they go to fix the screen.

I am wondering if there is a way i can backup the pictures from my phone to my PC without the power on the phone turning on.

Also, is this wipe is even necessary, i have another tech who seems somewhat shady and small scale but claims he can fix it without the wipe.

General :: Nexus S Broken Power Button And Fastboot

May 9, 2012

I have a Nexus S running 4.0.4. I did the update manually when it was released.

The bootloader is unlocked from previous ROM experiments but this ICS is stock/unrooted.

A few weeks later, the power button now doesn't work. This is a VERY common issue, but no one knows for sure if it is Hardware or Software. I was going to lock my bootloader and send it in to get a fix or replacement device from my carrier. Alternatively, I was going to attempt to flash a ROM onto it and see if the button comes back.

The bizarre thing is that when I go into fastboot, the device freezes and I cannot use any of the buttons. Furthermore, below the device information, nothing else shows up. The device shows up to ADB when booted, but Device Manager doesn't even find an unknown device when in Fastboot.

General :: Samsung Galaxy S2 Power Button Not Working In Recovery Mode?

Oct 13, 2013

my galaxy s2,it is rooted,and i have another problem : the phone restarts by itself and gets stucked in the boot loop, i never flashed a new rom ,it is running the stock rom,Someday i needed to factory reset the phone so i rebooted into recovery mode (power + home button +vol up) ,. I booted into recovery mode but the power button does NOT react as 'select' button although it works just fine for power on and off. I select a function and press [power] an the first line becomes the selected. pushing it again just flashed the screen. But pressing it long turns the phone off,and even after the factory reset from phone directly(with out going to recovery mode)

General :: Samsung Galaxy S2 Power Lock Button Not Showing Network Data On / Off Toggle

Feb 10, 2013

I was searching online to see how to make a shortcut to toggle the 3G connection on and off without having to sift through multiple menus. I came across the method of having a long press on the power lock button to pull up the menu but mine does not show the network data on/off option and never has. It only shows

* Silent mode
* Airplane mode
* Power off
* Restart

Nothing else. Is there a way I can make a shortcut or some other way to ADD the network data on/off on this pull up menu from the power lock button? By the way why would my phone not have this option from the start when the phone came with Gingerbread and was updated to ICS 4.0.4? I have Sprint so they call this the Epic 4G Touch, so not sure if it was Sprint that buggered this from the other SGS2s that have this feature or not.

HTC Eris :: Power On Volume Up Button - No Options For Backup Or Flash

Sep 30, 2010

A friend of mine just rooted the other day using the Root for Dummies thread, (the same as I used months ago), and loaded up Kayosfroyo 35-1. He is now attempting to flash nonsensycal 8.2 Black. Well he downloaded the rom but when he tries to power up the phone using volume up it just boots up regular. He doesn't get the options for Nand Backup Reboot Flash etc. Volume down works but he gets a different set of menu items.

Nexus :: Power Wake Button Usability

Mar 31, 2010

Current iPhone owner thinking about making the switch to the Verizon Nexus One. I have a concern about the usability of the power (wake) button on the top left of the Nexus One that I haven't heard anyone else mention so perhaps it isn't as big of an issue as I anticipate. Basically my concern is that the hand position and motion required to wake the device using that button is not the same position you want your hand to be in to use the phone. For example, with the iPhone I wake my device with the bottom "home" button that is on the face of the device and then I can very quickly just move my thumb up to swipe-to-unlock without having to reposition the phone. It seems like this would not be possible with the Nexus One given that there isn't a wake button on the face of the phone near the bottom.I'd really love to hear from current Nexus One owners. Is this not the usability issue that I am making it out to be? Do you just adjust and find a new way of quickly waking and then swiping to unlock the phone that is just as comfortable and efficient as with the iPhone? If so, what do you do?

Nexus :: Cannot Turn Off Screen Using Power Button?

Feb 7, 2010

I don't know what I have done, but the power button on the top, which I used to be able to press to turn off the screen, no longer works. I can use it to turn on the screen. And I can hold it on to power down, airplane mode, etc. But pressing it once does nothing when the screen is lit up. I have tried wiping all data from the boot menu. This restores the functionality, but when I restore all my data and apps (MyBackupPro) the problem returns.

Nexus :: Hold The Power Button To Turn On The Phone?

Oct 18, 2010

the worst thing about the nexus one is that you power on the phone by simply pressing the power button, not by *holding* it. how can I just *check* if the phone is turned off? when i go to a movie, i just want to double-check it's off, so i short-press power button but then if it's already off then i would instead be turning it on and have to wait for the long boot-up process. i just can't "make sure it's off".

General :: Non-working D1 Power Button

Sep 17, 2011

I read before where someone used some old, thin rubber from some headphones to replace the foam on the power button after disassembly. Send me pictures or anything of the sort showing how to do this? I really need to fix it, and I want to do it myself, but I don't want to turn my phone into a paperweight. "how to" guide on this issue and some reassurance that everything I take off can be put right back on if not broken.

General :: Disable Power Button In Any Way?

May 5, 2013

I have a Galaxy Note II. When I have it in the side pocket of my pants I sometimes reboot the damn thing by crouching down. I listen to audio books when renovating my cabin (which is going to take a month or so more), and this has happened 4-5 times today! So I'd like to disable that button all together. It just has an idiotic placement on the phone. I prefered my old HD2, that had a power button on the front that actually took a bit of pusing. This thing is pressed by looking hard at it!

General :: How To Power Down Nexus 7 (1st Gen) That Has Broken Digitizer

I purchased a replacement digitizer for my broken Nexus 7 (first generation). Now, the *first* step of the repair process is to power-off the Nexus 7...

BUT It's BROKEN! I cannot press on 'power off' option when holding the power button for 10 seconds - that resets the unit.

How am I supposed to power it down?

General :: Power / Lock Button Sensitivity?

Oct 18, 2013

I've hadf my kyocera rise through Virgin Mobile for a little over a year now and for the first time, I'm having an issue. My power/lock button has somehow become extremely sensitive to the point where it's a pain. I can slide my finger over the button to activate the lock/unlock sequence and after I press the button the power off option comes up. If I stick a needle under the button, it stops so I assume something is wedged in it. But No matter how often I clean it out with a needle, it continues to mess up.

General :: Fastboot / Recovery / ADB Without Power Button Or Access To OS

Nov 28, 2012

My Galaxy Nexus won't boot with the power button and I don't think my volume down button works either. There is also a pattern lock I don't know so I can't get into the OS. Is there anyway to wipe/fastboot/enter ADB without the power button or without needing USB debugging? Or is there a way to turn on USB debugging without getting into the OS?

General :: Unlock On Power Button Long Press?

Jun 11, 2012

I need to be able to skip the swipe screen and unlock the phone by long pressing the power button. On short press, it should act regularly (waking up and showing the swipe screen). I've tried "No Lock", "Autolock" and "My Lock Utility" but these unlock the phone immediately after pressing the power button I think this would be the ideal combination of functionality.

My phone is Motorola Atrix.

General :: Make Automated Movement Whenever Press Power Button?

Apr 29, 2013

Using Android, is it possible to automatically make your phone initiate a screen gesture (like a swipe across the screen) whenever you hit the power button, then proceed to turn off the phone? I know it's a very weird question, but I have my reasons.

I imagine it's possible with some type of app like Tasker, but I don't know if Tasker can initiate screen movements that imitate a finger moving across the screen in a point and direction of your choice.

Motorola Droid :: Designate Camera Button To Become Power Button?

Apr 21, 2010

I tried searching for this but couldn't find a thread that discussed it. My power button appears as though its been jammed. I dropped my phone on its corner where the power button is but I don't think thats what the problem is. Anyhow, recently my power button responds but I have to really press it hard and it as though the button is jammed cause it doesn't depress as far.

My question is that is there a way to designate the camera button to become the power button? I know on some phones you can make different buttons do different things and I was curious if this was possible on the Droid.

General :: Use Power Button To Turn Phone Off Without Getting Unlock Pattern Every Time

Feb 22, 2012

Got a question regarding the lock screen. I'm on 2.3.5 on a Skyrocket. If I let the screen timeout and come back to it in a few minutes, when I power on, no screen lock (just a wallpaper to swipe away). If I use the power button to put it to sleep (not physically power down), the next time I use the power button to turn it on, I'm presented with the pattern unlock screen. Is there a way to use the power button to turn the phone off without being presented with the unlock pattern every time (I'd like it to do this after maybe 15-30 minutes, but not immediately as it seems to be doing it now).
