    You know when you hit the home button and the screen sort of shrinks or does that kind of genie effect as it goes away? Is there a way to make it so when you hit the home button it just goes home in a blink?

    Since the iPhone runs a version of OS X, I would assume that there's a way to do this through terminal.app. For example, in OS X on a Mac, you can type this:

    defaults write com.apple.Dock mineffect scale

    in Terminal to make the effect happen faster.

    There are at least 2 issues though...

    #1. The iPhone must be jailbroken so you can install the terminal app

    and more importantly,

    #2. Where would this setting be located, if it's available to be changed at all...
