    Hey, I just decided to post this thread as a query whether other iPod touch 3G users have the same problem as me.
    My home button is very unresponsive, and it's not the first I've heard of this. One of my friends had to get his replaced due to the same issue.
    Sometimes pressing it doesn't register at all, and sometimes, a single press can register as a double or even triple, or even the opposite - a double press to change the song will sometimes end the application.

    It's most noticeable when I try to wake the iPod up using the home button, I have to press it at least 5 times for it to actually respond.

    If anyone shares this issue, has the 4.0 firmware fixed this problem in any way? I heard that it could have been an issue with the 3.1.3 firmware, but I'm holding off updating until a new jailbreak is released.

    Thanks

    Actually i was playing around with this kids ipt 32GB running on 3.1.3, i decided i would JB it with spirit and everything before i even turned it on. So the person was telling me the home button is messed up (After i jailbroke it and everything) So then i plugged it in to the computer and tried to restore it but it wouldn't work ): So i upgraded his firmware to 4.0 then it was working fine

    Is the unregestering home button that big of an issue to you?

    That's great news, my iPod is exactly the same as the one you described so it's good to hear it can be fixed.

    It does bother me sometimes, especially when I'm trying to change a song and it quits the app and I lose my progress.
    I suppose I'll just wait for the 4.0 jailbreak before I decide to upgrade.

    Mine's the opposite, it used to make a very loud noise but now it just sounds like my old 1st Gen.

    OT: I like your username. lol

    My home button does the same thing, but only when my iPod is in sleep mode
