    Contact the seller & see if they will provide the passcode. I don't know if it would be worth all the effort though... screws rusted?

    How much did you pay for it? Anything more than $0.01, IMHO, is a rip-off.

    i contacted seller. says he doesn't no pass code. not sure what IMHO me. lol i only paid $12 for it. not bad considering everything works on it except the power button. digitizers alone are $9. but its looking like my options have ran out and will just end up useing for parts. unless someone has any ideas of other things i haven't tried
