How To: Get around a broken HOME button on your iPhone

Get around a broken HOME button on your iPhone

Looking to fix your iPhone home button? Do you have a broken HOME button on your iPhone? In this video, learn how to get around it with an application called "mquickdo", formerly known as iHome for jailbroken iPhones. This also works for iPhone 1G or 2G and iPod 1G or 2G. Mquickdo allows you to use a series of finger swipes to function as the home button. This includes putting your iPod to sleep, going back to the home page, the double tap music menu, exiting an application, and more.
