This is (at least for me) the easiest and cheapest way to fix the home button. I had a Ipod touch 1st Gen which had a broken home button and Apple change it for free, with this second Ipod the home button also broke but I have no longer warranty so I figure out a way to fix it. Hopefully this will work for you too.

Step 1: Cut a piece of PVC card

At this point you should find a regular pvc card that you dont use anymore, a bank card or and old school one may do the work. The measures that worked for me are 1.7 x 0.5 cm
that's exactly what I'm doing and it doesn't works! help?<br />
Esteban, I think that if this doesnt helps you then maybe your home button is completely broken. you can try to do any of the replace tutorials available in youtube but they appear to be hard. Good luck man!<br />
<p>Would this tip work for my ipod touch 4th generation?</p>
Why does your ipod look so different?
Would it work on iPod Touch 4g?
how was it broken?
I really don't know how it broke... my guess is that when it falls to the floor something inside it moves or crashes.
very simple! <br>easy to do, practically free, this is one of the easier instructables out here!
thanks man!
