    Is there anyway to set the double tap to open ALWAYS my ipod miniplayer and not the whole application?
    Im tring to play crash bandicoot and listen the ipod at the same time but every time i start the game the music fade out coz the intro video on crash disables the music i guess

    Tnx

    Do you mean that you want to know how to play your music while playing a game?

    If so you just double tap while playing the game. after the video

    you can always double tap the home button to bring up the mini-player... even when in games, if that's what you're asking

    if you double tap the home button when music isint playing, the whole ipod menu comes up. if you double tap it when music is playing, it brings up the mini player.

    therefore, start your music before you enter the game or an app, just dont pause the music, or else you have to re-enter the whole ipod menu.

    i dont know why it does this, because i remember on my touch it would always only bring up the mini player.

    hey well since were on the topic of home buttons, i have a question.

    my friend has an iphone 1st gen and his home button doenst click most of the time.

    is there any way, easy or hard (program or editing), a way to either change the volume button into a home button

    or put a home button on the screen. ive seen people ask for an app for the home button to be on the iphone screen, but dont know if its out/possible.

    any help would be great, thanks.

    you can get sbsettings from cydia and get some add ons for it so you can just press a button that acts as a home button.
