Answer to: Home button is stuck and iPod won't turn onGuys, I had this issue (iPod touch won't turn on, iTunes wouldn't recognize it, home button was broken for almost 2 years. Tried everything, then I was !#^&@@ off so I tried to remove the home button (whatever tool you can think of). After like an hour, I was able to remove this little peace of sh*t, then the home button would actually work, cause I didn't damage the part under it. Then I just did the simple reset (hold power plus whats under the home button for 10 seconds) and it worked like a charm. Give it a shot if you're as desperate as I was. now my iPod touch looks weird but I retreived my home button so it's even better then before.
