    My ipod's home button got stuck up, so is there any installer app, I can use to go back to the home screen menu?

    I already filled in a repair solicitude, so i'm waiting for the "kit box" or something like that

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    in order to send them (apple) my ipod.

    I'm not in the US, so I guess that the only way it can be repaired (it's supposed to be free, i bought it like 10 months a go)

    How is a restore going to help a mechanical failure.

    Maybe you should stop pressing so hard on it too...

    I think JB'ing is the #1 culprit is there.

    Ugh , do you know what you're talking about ?
    Jailbreaking has nothing to do with a hardware failure ?

    Yes, I do.

    People press too hard on the Home button whilst going through the JB'ing process when they are counting off the seconds. You don't need to press down like your Hercules, but people do. Hence IMO the plethora of Home button failures.
