My touch screen still does not work but I can use an external mouse and keyboard until I can fix it and I had to push the home button several times to get past the swipe screen. Holding the home button down DID NOT work for me. I had to push it several times up to about 6 or 8 times and the screen pops past the swipe screen and comes to the normal main screen every time. I have a Samsung tablet. That's what I discovered.
