AnyUnlock: Resolution For N1’s Power Button Problem
If you’re a Nexus One owner, and you’re fed up with having to press the power button and then having to slide to unlock or maybe your power button is just wearing out, you might want to check out XDA forum member helloworld1‘s little app.
Before developing AnyUnlock, the XDA member was using a combination of three applications in order to use any key to turn the phone one + a widget to turn the phone off + another application to prevent the phone turning on with an accidental tap.
Unsurprisingly finding this combo a little inconvenient, helloworld1 decided to develop his own small app. AnyUnlock has the following features:
- Use any key to turn the phone on.
- A widget to turn the phone off.
- A very simple lock screen to prevent accidental taps.
- No root is required.
For more information head on over to the application thread. AnyUnlock is available to download free on the Market.

This year, cardboard returned...
