    Okay, I have a strange problem with my home button and I don't want to restore. Once in a while when I tap it it doesn't go back to the homescreen, it goes to the playing music thing. And when I double tap it it doesn't always recognize that it's a double tap. What could be wrong?

    I've had that problem since September. I sent it into Apple for repairs, and they denied it. I was really (really, really) mad.

    However, when it got back, it didn't have the problem. Still doesn't. I think that leaving it alone for like a week basically cured it.

    I have that same problem. It's isn't so annoying that I will restore.
    Are you jailbroken?

    Yeah, I wasn't sure. I thought it was something because I jailbroke. Hmm...
    So at least it's not just me. If you find a solution, please share

    I had a similar problem too, but when I was in the Home Screen taping the Home button would not take me to my First Home Screen( If I was in page 4, and clicked the Home button nothing would happen)
    It only recognized a double tap, for music.
    Don't worry though it fixes by itself, it seems this Firmware had quite a few bugs. 4.0 is on the way though! (Not anytime soon though....I think?)

    My home button does this from time to time as well. It usually "pretends" to break and mess up. I just dont use the home button for a day or two. Then over the next day or two of use, its fixes itself.

    Why aren't you willing to restore it if it could solve the problem?
