    i bought my ipod touch 3 months ago, im from venezuela i bought it from amazon. so everything was working pretty fine until i jailbroke it, it started to have some home button issues like when i pressed it, it didnt bring me back to the home screen. i restore it but the issue keep going. so i think my ipod touch's home button is broken. i cant send it back to the usa until 2 months from now, so i was wondering if there's any type of key or something that i can install in the music screen or something like that so it acts like a home key?..thank you.

    I'm not sure you can install anything to act like a home key really because it would have to float over all your apps whilst you have one active if that makes sense.

    All I can suggest really is bare it for 2 months

    Then send it back.

    How come you have to wait 2 months?

    thats when im traveling to the usa. here in venezuela we dont have any apple store or something like that. i bought it from amazon and send it to a friend's house, i wasnt gettin any problems until 3 days ago. if someone have any idea on what can i do please i'd appreciate it a lot. thanks anyways, and yeah it sucks a lot. and yeah it does makes sense, but i wasnt thinking about an application, maybe an add-on or something like that? like something i can put in the upper bar of all ipod's apps maybe?

    unjailbreak your ipod (restore)
    just in case if you screwed something up and you can't restore with itunes

    well i did restore my ipod, but the home key doesnt work. i dont know why because before the jailbreak it was acting really good, i dont know if it has to do with software issues or hardware issues. it doesnt feel broken or something like that (the home button) it feels as good as always..
