Camera button broke

Post by dudemo » Tue Sep 24, 2019 4:32 pm

As the title states, the camera button on my Lumia 950 XL broke. As such, I cannot boot into Windows 10 ARM anymore. Without the camera button, I cannot push "Enter" on the bootloader screen.

Is there any way to remap this button to the power button? Or modify the "Enter" key in the bootloader to be the power button?

Hi,
my camera button is also broken. Just wait 30 seconds without touching a button, and WoA will start. Or get a "Pure WoA" FFU file which has no boot selection.
Best wishes, Joachim

That's the thing, I'm dual booting Windows 10 mobile as well and Windows 10 mobile is at the top so I have to wait 30 seconds to boot Windows 10 mobile and cannot select Windows 10 ARM. Which kind of sucks.

Also, as many of us cannot get telephony working in WoA and the phone is my daily driver, I kind of need Windows 10 mobile.

I have this weird hack for you so you can at least still boot into Windows 10 ARM...

Use EasyBCD to change the boot configuration so that Windows 10 ARM is before Windows 10 mobile.

EDIT: just now realizing how pointless my suggestion is.. sorry :roll:

I mean, I could use that to modify it every time but I think it would be easier to just modify the boot menu to accept "power" as "enter" instead of the camera button.

So I ordered a new back plate for the phone and it just arrived. The camera button on this one works meaning I can now boot to Windows 10 ARM. I'm not sure why the original did not work. The button on the original is there but it doesn't seem to push the button anymore. I may try and glue something to it so it has some more push and see if that works.
