    This has started happening more and more lately. I push the home button a single time, without holding it down at all, and Siri comes up. I do have Activator installed but everything is set without any conflicts so not sure what the problem is, and it's been happening more and more without me installing or uninstalling anything that might be interfering.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks guys.

    I see it too, occasionally (using Spire).

    More commonly, i press the Home button, nothing happens and I press it again. Either Siri starts or (more commonly) I get the app switcher (or whatever it is called).

    Turn off the Listening Service on "Hands-Free Control"

    If you have that tweak that's usually the problem

    Irregular home button operation is a normal characteristic & weakness caused by Apple's stubborn insistence on using an old tech mechanical button. I've experienced this irratic behavior till the button fails on three iPhone 4 models, and one 4S.

    That's how you know it's a genuine iPhone :D

    If you have "Activator" check the settings and change them, if problems continues to persist remove and re-install.

    I was getting this too turns out it was multifl0w that was causing it. Evan if it was set to activate with a gesture besides the home button, it would still activate siri randomly. It's too bad cause I think multifl0w is the best appswitcher replacement.

    Woah, I had a really weird hunch that Multiflow was to blame but I had no idea why. Thanks for the tip, I'm going to uninstall it now and see what happens. Will post back here soon.

    Thanks again.

    EDIT: Seems to have solved the problem! Huge thanks, my Siri was coming up on every other home button press.

    In settings, switch your wallpaper to a default stills apple has available. Apply it to the lock screen only. Amazing!!

    I think Will22 was curious how your answer has anything to do with this thread (and I am wondering about that, too :D )
