Ok, so the home button on my iPod touch 4g has been broken for a while. I've been using the home button in Assistive touch an alternative and its been working well. I'm now getting tired of it as it takes up a chunk of my screen and is getting annoying. I know there's a way to enter dfu mode without using the home button via the dfu ipsw mode on an older version of redsnow. I've tried that method before with no success. It said the version wasn't compatible or something and when I tried to enter dfu mode via an iTunes restore, it didn't work. I'd like to jailbreak my device when the new 6.1 jailbreak comes out. So I have a few questions: What is the best and latest method of jailbreaking without a home button? If I do get a working jailbreak, I know you can set a different button as a home button. When the device is in sleep mode, will the button I mapped as the home button register? Any advice would be great.
