    Default trouble with my home button

    i have just recently become the owner of an iphone 3g (second hand) its all unlocked and seems to work fine so far the only problem i have with it is the home button doesn't always work and i have to press down on it for an abnormal amount of time or turn off the phone completely. does any one know how i might be able to fix this? many thanks

    Two options.
    - Restore stock 3.1.3 and unlock using ultrasn0w (redsn0w for JB)
    - create custom 4.1.x and restore and unlock it

    * remember you have a home button problem. proper button press is required
    for DFU/Restore modes !
