    Since my phone fell into the toilet the power button is broken. It was still working for about 1 week after it fell into the water and then the power button stopped working. Now i am able to start the recovery mode by plugging it in and pressing "home" and "volume up". But i can't choose any option because i need the power button to select...
    Is there any other option to start it again? (I need to connect it with my PC to save the data)

    Find the contact points for the power switch (it's the 2 contacts on the switch that are soldered to the board it's on) and short them for about one second (like you'd press the button to turn the phone on). Or have a shop solder 2 wires to the switch connection points for you, so you can short the wires without having to open the phone (you'll probably have to pay them something.)

    There's no way to "fix" it in software - those 2 points have to be physically shorted.
