How to: turn on the Nexus One without the power button
I’ve had the Nexus One ever since it was released and although I’ve moved on to several other smartphones, it has remained my backup device. Unfortunately the Nexus One suffers from a serious hardware fault, the power button will, after a while, require more force to operate and will finally give up, leaving you with no obvious way to unlock or power on your device.
You can surely send it back to be repaired, but after the first fix, my Nexus One suffered from the same fault after a few weeks.
Well there is actually life after the power switch, as long as you know a couple of tricks and first and foremost, how do you actually turn on the smartphone without the power button.
