Default Nexus One stuck at welcome screen.

Hey all!,

Recently I have been experiecing some problems with my Nexus One phone.
First of all, the power button of this phone broke, I simply fixed this by installing an app which makes the volume button function as the power button.

Now yesterday my phone got stuck (which happens quite often to be honest), but when I tried to reboot my phone, it wouldn't get passed the loading screen. After retrying a few times I finally got passed the loading screen. But now it's stuck at the welcome screen where it says; "Welcome to Nexus One. Touch the android to begin".

I can't get past this, I tried simply pressing the adroid button, I tried tapping all corners in clockwise order but none of these seemed to work.

Do you guys have any idea on how to fix this? That'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance guys,

Normally I would suggest doing a factory reset, but since your power button is broken I'm afraid you can't navigate the boot menu or recovery... If you by stroke of luck have usb debugging enabled, you can try a FR through adb.
