    i wasnt sure whether to post this in help or applications, but here goes: my home button stopped working after i dropped my ipod, can somebody make an app with an icon that acts as a home button that stays on top of everything, with the double tap for music player and stuff, or even just to exit things, because its really annoying to have to power my ipod on and off every time i want to do something different. your help would be greatly appreciated

    If you resgistered your iPod the Warranty lasts for 1 year, So I know it has not been a year, just take it back act like your really mad, say one day It just stopped working DO NOT MENTION YOU DROPPING IT, and you'll get a new one.

    *Edit*

    If you haven't registered it, then do it and then go to Apple.

    would they be able to tell I dropped it if I send it to them in the mail? or would I be better off bringing it to an apple store?

    Just take it in. No unles is realy cracked, but yeah I work at an Apple store, just take it in, Most of the employees just ask and ask, but never investigate, I do, but I tell them I'll switch it anyway.

    But yeah Just take it in, they really won't investigate it.

    i dont see why an application like dock wouldnt work. just have it in the top left corner and 2 options, home and double tap. the only problem is that manually putting your ipod into restore mode would be impossible

    just restore it with o=itunes if its jailbroken, put some media on it, then take it to the apple store and say it stopped working and they should either fix it or change it. i think

    thanks, i just installed dock and that solves the powering off and on problem for switching apps, but now i just need an app that simulates the double home button tap, because dock wont show up when im in my music, so i still cant do anything while im listening to music
