    I came across this little tip while browsing the Interwebz. See if it'll help you:

    Step 1: Open a stock app, like Weather or Stocks.

    Step 2: Press and hold your power button until “slide to power off†appears and release.

    Step 3: Press and hold your Home button until the “slide to power off†goes away, and the app force quits.

    See if that does any good.

    But, if you can't get your Home button to work, I'm afraid that's a hardware issue, which will necessitate a trip to an Apple Store for the Geniuses to look at it.

    Sorry to be of not much help...

    This doesn't fix a 'broken' Home button, but you could turn on Gestures within Settings, and then use 5-finger pinch on-screen to return Home...

    Can't say I understand why but this worked for me! My home button has worked but it started to take several hard pushes to respond. I tried your fix and it now takes one light push. Thanks!
