    My iPhone 4 home button is semi-working and its driving me insane.

    "Double taps to open app switcher - Closes app accidently"
    "Ok ok itll work now - Double taps .... Shows spotlight"

    My question is, if I get the phone replaced, will the new phone be updated to 4.3.5?

    I will be jailbreaking it (im on 4.3.3 untethered) and I cant stand tethered jailbreaks. Im hoping its on either 4.3.3 or 4.2.1 atleast..

    it depends on which Apple store u go to. The one that dont get as much customers as the big Apple store will most likely have older stock. 4-5 months ago my bro at could still get me some iPhone 4 running on 4.0.1 even tho the latest firmware was 4.3.

    I just got mine replaced. They gave me a refurb which came with 4.2.X. Unless Apple decides to update it right then and there before handing it over.

    Odds are high you'll get a phone on 4.3.5. A number of people in the Hacks forum have exchanged for the same reason over the last month; most seemed to get 4.3.5.

    Try this first: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1223292

    You may need to repeat the process more than once, if your home button is pretty bad, but it's absolutely worth a shot. If it works, you've dodged a tethered JB. If not, all you're out is a bit of time.

    Shortly after posting this thread I read & tried that method.

    It did fix the issue for the most part, but it still happens, & im not going to put up with it anymore.
