About the problems with Home button of iPhone 4 device you all know so I do not think has got to get back into the details because we have previously discussed about them. I still talk about a very simple procedure that get back to life the Home button and a day passed after I tried it and I noticed that it is successful. The method used by me only involve the devices buttons and is not possible to not ruin the device so it is 100% safe and it is working. Follow the instructions below after completing their Home button should work properly:

  • Unlock it, open an application and hold down the Lock / Power to the screen displays the slider to close the device.
  • This technique makes a recalibration of the Home button and after it carried out everything should work normally without problems.
  • Take the hand from the Lock button, then press lightly the Home button and hold it down for 5-10 seconds until the menu disappears and appears on the screen Springboard.

Unofficially it is the technique for recalibrating the Home button and you can repeat whenever you want because you do not like to mess up the device. In my case the above steps have returned to normal functionality of the Home button and I hope that in the future things will stay on that way. Even in case that the button begins to malfunction after a few days / weeks, you can repeat the procedure to revive him. I hope that techniques will be useful.

Lately many iPhone owners complained that the Home button does not work on their own devices as well as they were expected. The problem is a general one, affecting users worldwide so we are not talking about something local or something that affects only terminals with or without jailbreak. For this problem there are two simple fixes: either you go to the store of device were you have purchased it and you hope that they will consider this issue as one that requires changing the device or you can jailbreak and install Activator.

The first option is simple, you all know what involves so we will talk about the two example. Activator is a plugin available in Cydia from a long time and many tweaks launched in this year that is use to implement various functions in the iOS. Activator is a tweak that allows the users of iDevice to use gestures to undertake any actions in the operating system, regardless of how those actions that were before the jailbreak. Activator allows us to use gestures to replace any hardware button from our iDevices but only when the operating system is loaded on the device. If the device is still closed then depend on the physical buttons to restart it. To enter the terminal in Recovery / DFU Mode again you need physical buttons.

The downside to the Activator is that it requires  few resources to work so will have a significant impact on battery life but will spare the nerves caused by the Home button. To set the performance of certain gestures that perform functions that normally were “linked” to the Home button, go to Settings> on and set what you want. This tweak works 100% correctly on iOs 4 but the iOS 5 might encounter small problems when you using it.
