Default What are my options if my Menu button is broken? No root possible. Hi guys,

The Menu key of my galaxy 550 is broken,

found some apps that may give access to Menu but all of them require the phone be rooted... I tried to root but I apparently I have to enable 'USB Debugging' which can be accessed through the Settings Menu... which I don't seem to have access to...

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot for the help.

Hey man, thanks for the reply,

Indeed there's one app (at moment can't remember what's it called) that apparently can give access to the proper android settings, but the phone is needed to be rooted, and mine is not rooted

Any suggestion?

Thanks a lot sdrawkcab25,

Now I can access the android settings, I think now I should be able to root the phone, so I can install Soft Keys and then can have access to apps menus as the Gesture Search won't allow me to access menus of specific apps.

BTW Sorry for the broken english, I know It must be painful to read my posts.
