I have a zombie Galaxy S II.
I wanted to make a home server from it, maybe .
LinuxDeploy did not work on it so I've tried to install another ROM but I've failed, so I cannot boot it now.
It's home button is also broken so I cannot boot into recover or download mode.
It is a soft brick now.
It also has cracks on screen and other problems so I guess I will just buy Orange Pi

@charlag Or you could open it up and bridge the broken home button with another switch...

@charlag @ckeen if you want this is a great occasion to do practice with something that's already broken

@surveyor @ckeen maybe later when I will have more time but this is a great point
