My Nexus one has been a good friend for the past year but now I am running into problems with the power button.
I had 2 options:
– open heart surgery, order the replacement unit and change it myself.
– flash the phone in order to remap the power button to the trackball.
I chose the second option as it was available to me right now.
I followed this guide:
Extremely well done and well documented. there are still a couple of step which are not so obvious and could more explained. but all in all, it’s a success.
On top of solving my problem, I now have access to many other advanced features. The memory free is a lot bigger and I can put much more apps.
All my apps came back thanks to ASTRO file manager. Awesome application that does a very good job.
All my texts came back thanks to "SMS backup and restore".
All my call history came back thanks to "Call logs backup and restore".
