Home button not working.I'm having trouble with my home button... Anyone know what the resistance across the button's two leads should be? I measured...
Answer to: Home button not working.I was able to isolate the weak short to the mother board. Instead of replacing the phone I was able to jail-break it so I can now use slide gestures to simulate a home button press. Phone is working fine, but I'm wondering how long it will be until that short reveals it's negative effect on other circuitry. With any luck it's isolated to the home button.
Answer to: Water Damage - home button no longer worksI have a 3GS that the home button circuitry shorted out on. I was able to determine that the short is somewhere on the motherboard. Rather than pay to get my phone fixed I jail broke my phone and am able to use an app called the activator to use screen gestures to simulate a home button press. This was by far the easiest route for me. I used jailbreakme.com which was very straight forward. Note you'll need to have java enabled for you to be able to use this website. I believe if you haven't updated past OS 4.0.1 then it should work.
