    I've got an 3G 32gig ipad2 5.1.1 with jailbreak. I've had the jailbreak since it came out and have had zero problems until today. All of my finger gestures work except pinch to home screen. It worked fine until today. Not sure what happened. Anyone else have this issue?

    Found my problem. Quasar Cydia app updated today. I uninstalled the app and pinch to home works! App must be buggy or something.

    Well, glad we could help. :)

    But seriously, thanks for the heads up on one of the quirks of Quasar. People have reported trouble with this app, so this may help them should they discover additional problems.

    Same problem with me. I updated Quasar also today. I like this Quasar but I don't wat to loose the pinch.
    Quasar out of my iPad.
    Thanks for the warning.

    Thanks guys. I had the same problem and uninstalling Quasar fixed it. Not only did I get the pinch gesture back but respringing no longer clears my app switcher tray, which Quasar was causing even before the latest update-but I hadn't diagnosed which app was causing it. So thanks.

    Does anyone know of other apps that cause the same problem? I do not have Quasar Cydia and I also cannot pinch to get to the home screen.

    I haven't heard of any per apps that have that issue. The way I discovered the Quasar problem was just removed apps one by one that weren't installed before the problem arose.
