i had the same issue bro. lemme help you out.. First let me start by saying- if you have the newest JB from greenp0ison along with a broken power button; Whatever you do, DO NOT REBOOT YOUR PHONE. For some reason under this configuration, the phone gets stuck with the spinning wheel of death.


how do you power down with a broken power button? How do you get rid of this stupid spinning wheel? Easy, use the activator JB to power down. And to fix spinning wheel issue, you simply need to leave the phone on and it will die out (mines took about 7 hours).

After it dies out, simply plug the charger back in and it will reboot normally. Reinstall your JB and use THE activator app. I have my power button activated using the volume buttoms.

This is the only workaround. For some reason, this JB (5.1.1, 2.0.4 for mac) doesn't like reboots... Let me know if you need any more help.

Im waiting patiently for the 5 so I can get rid of this 4
