Default Dead Battery - Hood opening

I was on vacation and when I come back the battery is dead on my 2016. Not even lights flash when I push the button on remote.
Does anyone knows how to open the hood from outside, so the battery can be recharged? Door lock cylinder is broken and 5th Gen for some reason now has only driver door lock cylinder, my 2005 has one on the driver door and another on the hatch door, but for some reason Toyota stop making this.

Did you get this figured out?

No, I didn't find the way to open the hood. Had to call the locksmith to open the vehicle door to gain the access to the hood release.
I'm wondering if I can install the lock cylinder in the passenger door... Did someone do it?
