I dropped my phone into water the other day and the power button has stopped working. What is odd though is that I can force restart the phone by holding power+volume down, it's just the power button on its own that doesn't seem to work.
I have tried various apps to remap the function to the power button but they are insufficient in one way or another (usually that it just stops working after a couple minutes of inactivity).
I have seen methods to remap the power button to the volume button directly, but this requires root access. Of course, this is a problem because I need to power down the phone completely (which I could do with the Tasker app), but I'm not sure if I will be able to turn it back on again after that.
Is there then a way to force the phone to boot into Download mode with the Tasker app? I can see that I can reboot with the types "Normal", "Recovery", "Bootloader" and "Shutdown". Is the "Bootloader" type just another name for Download mode?
Forgot to mention to phone - it's a Samsung A6
