A friend of mine has got an Samsung S3 Mini. Recently the power button broke (could not turn off screen by pressing the button). Now the mobile got accidentally turned off and wont turn back on, because the power button is broken. Is there any way to turn it on again? Like boot into recovery/download mode somehow? Or using some ODIN magic? I already searched a bit, but everything I found did not work.
I tried charging it, removing battery and inserting it again.
I read about a "Samsung JIG" which is used to boot the device into download mode. Could I turn it on from there?
