    If jailbroken, you can get the home button toggle/switch for SBsettings.

    or you can get activator and set some other action to simulate a press of the home button.

    yeah it's cool at first but then you realize that you shake for other functions in many apps and now you're just going to close the app without trying instead. my favorite home button simulator was the volume up, down.

    no problem! The apps that I have that use shaking for various functions are Alarm Clock, Tap Tap, F.A.S.T., Notes (pretty sure you have this one too), and Pocket God.
