I have a Moto X and my lock button on the side has broken. Is there any way to shut down the phone even though the button is broken? Will this allow me to start it back up too?
- ADB: Once you have the Android Debugging Bridge (available with the Android SDK or packaged separately) installed on your system and authorized on your device, you can simply run this command from a terminal:
adb reboot -p
- Replace the missing button with a Pressy clone that plugs into your headphone jack. You can then use it with an app like KeyCut to configure what it does.
