    I just jailbroke my buddies iTouch with a broken home button by using the iTunes restore hack.

    Everything works but it does get kind of annoying having no home button.
    I was wondering if (because its jailbroken) is there some sort of simulated home button (maybe double tap power button.. idk) that would act as a home button.

    Or maybe like a button thats always on the screen simulating the home button. Just some way or feature that would allow him to use his home button.

    I dont think there will be much answers, but just a thought.

    Thanks a lot,

  2. iHome in Cydia should do the trick.

    SBSettings also has an add-on that allows you to do the same thing. I find it easier than iHome, as it relies less of irritating gestures. If the application is full screen, you can hold the power button so the status bar shows up again, and you can activate SBSettings.
