    Whenever I hit my home button, it does not respond and does nothing. But when I tap it twice, the music menu pops up. What can and should I do? (Besides restoring

    No, it just didn't work after playing FieldRunners.

    that doesn't matter. i've had this happen to me before. it will pop up even if u wait for 5 seconds.

    @ OP: if ur jailbroken, go and reboot it. go into dfu mode, and run the patch again thru a gui. that will fix the problem. then after u reboot, go and download from cydia, something called Close Button Widget. this is a button for sbsettings, and when u press it, it will close the current app u are in. i have it installed just incase.

    Sometimes that happens to me in Cydia. The home button becomes unresponsive for a few seconds. If I press it twice, then it shows the music menu. After waiting 15 seconds, press the home button and wait some more. FieldRunners is a good game.

    No, I'm just asking because I've had some lag at times where I pushed the home button, nothing happens, and then like 35 seconds later it kicks back in gear and starts working. If I hit the home button, waited a little bit, hit home again, music would pop up. That's why I asked how long he waits before he hits the home button twice.
