You can get Activator from Cydia to use your volume buttons as your home/power button when you press them at the same time.

Repairing the home button is a 5 minute job.

Nice advise. But unfortunately the home + on\off button can't be repaired because there is some important parts broken on the logic board.

That's why this question.

Pollytintop, it really is a 5 minute job. It takes 30 seconds to unlock and lift the front panel, one minute to disconnect the front panel from the phone, another 30 seconds to replace the home button switch. You still have 3 minutes to put everything back together.

Adem, can you describe what parts are broken?
