    Home button not working

    Ladies and Gents i have never noticed how much i use my home button until today when i pressed it and it did nothing.

    i get a vibrate when the button is pressed but nothing happens
    the vibrate leaves me to believe that the hardware is still working

    i was messing around with my phone and possibly messed up a link

    is it possible to reflash gb and reupdate to ota ics?
    i know after .905 with the leaks you could not

    ideas and input would be much appreciated



    note: search button is not working either

    when you say messing around with your phone do you mean files or settings ?
    No you cant go back to GB after updating to ICS.
    You can go to the link at the bottom of my post & get the FXZ file & re-flash it to ICS if you need to.
    Everything you need is in that link.

    Same thing happening here. Comes back after a while though. Another bionic ics bug I guess. My work around is the back button, although it does not help sometimes like when in a browser and you want to keep the page you are at.

    You say re flashing, but I got ics via ota. I did do a factory wipe.

    Re flashing is not the same as factory wipe, is it?

    Flashing is replacing everything to the point that its like out of the box.. all mods and customization gone

    Factory reset just deletes data and settings. Edited system files would still be present

    Please do research and know what you are doing before attempting to flash.
    Sst45jeff's signature has a walkthrough but read it entirely before starting
    YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA.. MAKE SURE YOU BACK IT UP ON EXTERNAL OR CAN AFFORD TO LOSE IT

    Thanks!

    So there might have been some conflicts caused with the OTA that seem to be resolved by flashing it, huh?

    I also had this issue and discovered it was a result of an incomplete Titanium Backup restore. I simply reran the restore all system data.

    Yes this was a big problem for a lot of people. Flashing it puts it back to stock out of the box with ICS.
    Make sure you pack up your files on internal memory that you want to keep.
