Does anyone know whether soft home button works for iphone 2.xx?

I would love to see a soft-lock app so I don't have to keep hitting the top button. I have an old 2G and that button has begun to get stuck..."All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." -E. Burke

I too worry about home button wear, I would like to see this app develop. I hope stable version comes out soon. I home button is wiggly!!

+1 for a soft home button

as for the 'usefulness' of this application:
it has been a life saver (and especially money saver) to me!!
My home button does not function anymore and this application has turned my almost useless iphone back into a perfectly usable phone!
So thanks a 1000 times to the developer!

interesting... I hope someone can put this to good use.

Hey is this app still alive? And does it work with iphone 3g 2.2? Or is there any other apps like this? I could really use this kind of a app cause my home button is broken

All these people saying "useless app" etc really piss me off. If someone hadn't made this, I'd have to continue completely turning off my iphone and then turning it back on every time I want to use a new program (ie. change from safari to itunes or even just to use my phone).
iPhone home buttons DO apparently wear out, and to me this app is useful enough that I won't have to spend a couple hundred dollars and lock into a two-year contract (which would cost me a $750 deposit because I can't continue my gophone account with AT&T for the new version of iPhone and my credit is bad) JUST TO HAVE A FUNCTIONAL IPHONE.
All you people wasting your time commenting on something that you don't have a use for and discouraging developers who are actually doing people with dysfunctional phones a favor really make me sick. I don't even care that this post is a year old.
Thank you so much to whoever created this!

Pointless? Say your home button is malfunctioning. You take it to the macstore, and they tell you your phone has been wet, and liquid damage is not covered by the warranty. But the phone works fine except for the home button... luckily, instead of forking out the cash for a new phone, you find an app for a soft home button! I wouldn't call that pointless, would you?

i cant add the sourceCurrently addicted to Modern Warfare 2! add me on PSN: A_Mexican_guy

I completely agree!
I was reading this thread with so much hope because my home button stopped working. But there were so many posts complaining about the app. Why do people complain if it's not relevant to them?
I think it's a fantstic idea.
Now, please, where is the source? I can't seem to locate it from the quotes above...

I have a 3g on 3.0 in which the home button is not working. I was able to upgrade the phone by taking the phone apart and jumping the home button contacts. I ssh'ed the ClickOnce app onto the phone. It shows up, and when I hit the app, it acts as the home button. But no button shows up when I am in any other app. So, so far, not working.
BTW, I just ordered a replacement home button flex cable / ribbon.

I found a workaround for my earlier problem. Install sbsettings and add clickonce to the dock. Its annoying to just press the home button: swipe, dock, clickonce. But it works. I think mQuickDo is another app that may help/

anyone know the source for this app? or if it works on the 3.0 firmwares?????

My phone is out of warranty and the home button broke. When I opened it up I found it was from a worn copper contact that had broken off. I can order the part for 45 dollars or download this app (which is free) and fix an old iphone.
You may find some comfort in the fact that after reading all of the comments you are not the only complete moron out there.
I was not able to add this source or find the app. After reading about 5 pages of this blog I moved on. Because there are so many people with this issue though might I suggest this.
mQuickDo??the bread and butter for iPhone and iPod Touch
Hope this helps. My home button is broke as well!
or just do a search for mquickdo in Cydia or Rock.

what is the app called in iphone cake?
i'm on the site and cannot find it and there are over 300 pages of apps.
i was hoping to use the app as a replacement for my home button which is unresponsive.

Now jail breaking is. Whole other story. Look into the iPhone modding/jailbreaking section if you are interested in taking "the plunge."
