    Home Button does Not Work after iOS 5.1.1. update

    Ok this update officially stinks I responded to someone that mine was working fine only to find out that a day later, the home button started acting up. It was taking like 4 pushes to get it to react. I called apple support and they wanted me to send it in for repair and be without an iPad for a couple of weeks. I DON'T THINK SO. They better get this fixed cause it is very annoying. I am about to try and find a jailbreak so I can downgrade it back to 5.1. Apple, you guys are screwing up. Get it together!

    Did they recommend to try to re-calibrate your home button? Somewhere I saw somebody post the directions of this yesterday.

    No he didn't even try to go past saying "did you do a reset?". After I told him yes, he said well you need to send it for repair. I was like, its not even a month old! You got to be kidding me.

    See if this helps for calibrating your home button. It is geared towards the iPhone, but my understanding can be done with the iPad.

    Darn it...I was hoping it would. Christian, have you actually made an appointment with a Genius over at Apple? That may do you some good, versus to speaking to Apple Customer care on the phone.

    The closest one is two hours away in Charleston, SC. I plan on heading that way in a couple of weeks. So I will have to suffer till then.

    Christian, I created a new thread for you to see if we can get more attention for you. Two weeks is a long time to wait, maybe others can help you if they see this as a stand alone thread.

    Well, I can't help in getting the home button to working if a reset, restart or the home button calibration didn't work.

    However, until you can get the iPad to the Apple store for a look-see by the geniuses, maybe you can try turning in the Assistive touch function in Settings (Settings > General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch = ON). You'll get a little white dot that you can use as a Home button until you can get your iPad fixed.

    Sorry I can't help better.

    The Assistive Touch feature that Mickey has shown you will make it easier for you until you can get to your Apple store. They will just replace your iPad when you do get there so make sure you do a complete backup before going.
