    Hi everyone. I had an issue with my home button. I ordered the home button package from this website and replaced it couple days ago. But right after replacement started noticing weird phone behavior - the button worked fine when I clicked it but time from time phone was clicking the home button on it's own without my mechanical help - I mean when I even don't touch the phone it's executing the home button click. Have no idea what is wrong - was fully following the manual - maybe software issue?

    My firmware is still 4.0.1 and the phone is jailbroken.

    Could be something in between the homebutton and the board itself, check if there is nothing in between the button and the board except from the button. Check the board also, could be a shot in the blind, but worth checking..
