    I just cant get my home button to work. Is there anybody else facing the issue? I have a factory unlocked iPhone 4. The phone was fine just before the update and now after the update the home button just refuses to work!

    Have you tried a reboot? If so I'd try a restore.

    Everything is functioning like normal on this end.

    If those suggestions don't work, try the home button recalibration method.

    1) Open a stock apple application. ie one that comes with a factory fresh iPhone (weather, stocks, calendar, safari, etc.)

    2) Hold the power button until the slide to power off slider comes up.

    3) Now hold the home button for a couple seconds until the slider goes away and the iPhone returns to the homescreen.

    4) Enjoy your more responsive, working home button!

    I have actually had this happen on 5.0.1, but a reboot fixed it also. I assumed it was a jailbreak "bug". Perhaps not?

    Nope sorry, it helped me. I've actually fixed broken home buttons that did not work at all through this method.

    I disagree. It fixed his almost 24 hour delay responding to posts. :D
