    Does anyone know how to create a custom gesture for the home button under assesibity kinda like the 5 finger pinch on the ipad. There are things under settings for custom gestures but thinking it maybe not possible to do this on the iphone only ipad Thanks

    thanks think beta 3 had this but they probably figured it wasn't useful or silly in the case of 5 finger pinch. just wanted to use a custom gesture like swipe up or a circle for home screen as opposed to reaching down sometimes.

    look under General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch > and I think you go from there.

    Yes this can be done. Was just playing with it and it works great. Don't even need to create a custom gesture it exists already.

    Thanks, can you explain how? assuming no JB or hack. Only thing i can see is to turn on assesbility features but that gives you that white dot and really takes 2 touches/clicks to hit get home button functionality so maybe not worth it.

    You have to turn on Assistive Touch then scroll down and you will see "Custom Gestures" and you can create new gestures

    Thanks but how do assign home button functionality and also you still have the white dot and there is no way to toggle off "Always show menu" at least on my phone.
