I've screwed up here big time and am posting in the desperate hope that one of you genius's (is that genii?), as as happened many times before, can help me.
Last year I stood on my beloved Vega and cracked the screen. No problem, I bought a replacement screen and with help of you lot on here managed to install it and it worked fine. The only bizarre side effect was that the back button no longer worked which was not too bad because I could use the back button on the screen, although I wouldn't be able to install any new ROMs because I couldn't get into recovery any more. This wasn't too much of an issue because I was using Vegacomb and I was quite happy with it (a bit frustrating when ICS came about but lets not worry too much about that now)
Anyway, roll forward to last night and, being a bit bored and thinking that I'd like to have bluetooth working, I thought I'd do some 'investigating' and found that I had a back up ROM saved on my memory card and knowing that I did have Corvus and MCR8 installed at some point decided to restore back to it to see what it was and if bluetooth worked on it.
I'm now stuck on a 'if you paid extra to have this ROM on your vega you have been ripped off' boot loop (this has never happened to me on restoring an old ROM, only on installing new ROMs) and in the absence of a working back button am now unable to get into recovery to fix everything, OUCH!
1) Is there a way of getting into recovery or Clockwork Mod without needing the back button? I fear I already know the answer to this
2) Is there a way of repairing the back button? I have looked at the circuit board and all looks fine to my untrained eyes
3) Can you get the circuit board that houses the hard buttons as a spare part and where?
4) Is it time to buy a new Vega?
5) Any other ideas?
Thanks in desperate anticipation.
