    When I go to iPod mode on my ipod touch, I can't get back to my home screen. I press home and it just gives me song options like "Play, pause, raise volume" etc. and there are two buttons that say "Close" and "Music"

    I tried holding the Home button forever, didnt work
    I tried double clicking home button, didnt work

    Only thing that worked is reseting the ipod touch.. I don't want to have to do that all the time when I listen to music though :/

    Does everyone else have this problem?

    I have never had that problem. I really have no idea what you mean by ipod mode.

    It gives you the "Play, pause, raise volume" when you double tap the home button in an app when you tap the home button once it will close and you music will be playing you will notice the play icon in the status bar
    Any time you hold the home button down while your in an app/game for more than 7 seconds it will force quit, so you were basically quiting the app lol

    by iPod mode I mean tapping the button that says "Music" at the bottom.

    my 8gb Touch isnt jailbroken or anything. Nothing happens at all when I press the home button. Then when I double click it brings the "pause/play/volume" menu thing.


    thats the problem - nothing happens when I press the home button :S

    Then why respond?

    On topic.

    Since you can double tap the home button its probably nothing hardware related. Maybe try restoring or maybe reset it.

    oh yeah i just remembered, i have this problem ONLY when i plug in my speakers, but ive never had it happen just normally. i know what u mean, that in mobilemusicplayer, pressing home button doesnt go back to home, so u need to double tap then, click music, then home. i would suggest restore if you find it annoying
