Hi there. I've a 4th generation Ipod touch. It's kinda ****ed up: both the power and home buttons are stuck. I use an app called Activator I got jailbreaking it to make the two volume buttons function as a power and a home button, but there's a big problem: when the iPod has been locked for a few mins, the volume buttons won't work as home and power like they do when the iPod isn't locked. So I press the stuck home button really hard, and it works. Thing is, every time I do it I've to press it even harder than the last time. The iPod's obviousy out of warranty and I don't wanna spend the money Apple (or some random repair store)'d charge me for repairing it. Also, nowadays I don't really use the iPod a lot, so I've decided to take a shot opening it and fixing it by myself. My plan's taking the home button out of the iPod and using the "real" button that lies beneath (not very aesthetic, I know). I've some experience opening electronics, but this thing's different: it has no screws. I know some people apply heat to open it, but I don't really have the elements. Buut, and here's why I'm making this thread, the iPod has taken some falls in the past and it's already "open", not wide open but I could apply force. Here're some pictures: That black space at the left corner's what I'm talking about. It even emits light when the iPod isn't locked. So, what do you guys think? Could I fulfill my plan (removing the home button and leaving the "real" button to press first, then closing the iPod with some fancy glue)? I won't try to repair the power button because it's soldered to the iPod's circuit board, and I've no soldering skills. Thanks in advance. Also, english's not my native language, so I may've commited some mistakes when it comes to phrasing things.
