Thread: Home button not sensitive

  1. #1
    Default Home button not sensitive
    It seems to work... But not well. I have done the home button recalibration. What else can I do?
    Does dust or dirt get in there? Can I just shoot air through the bottom? Any help would be very nice indeed..

    Jailbroken 4
    Version 4.2.1
    Thanks!!

    Can try to shoot some air in there. Home button can be fixed I have never done one. Cowboy is the one to talk to. Or you can do a search on YouTube and see how hard it would be

    The home button flex is probably worn (metal clips) or damaged... I would replace the home button and its flex cable.
    If I helped you in any way, please click on the button!

    Sorry if that sounded douchebag-ish. So the alcohol might clean it out between the button and screen glass? Awesome. I'm trying that when I get him.

    It could i like to use the q-tip and then push the home button up and down a few times and drag the dry side of the qtip around the home button to pick up any dirt

    Blowing air usually works for me. I prefer using tvc-mall (as I buy things in bulk) Much buy is great for single items
