    I decided to flash the new CM7 RC4 on my D1 and after I boot up, I cannot return to my home app when clicking the home button. I can feel the little vibration when I press the button, but when I longpress my home button, the recent apps list does not show up. Thanks for anyone's help.

    It must be a bug thats still managed to slip through in the ROM itself. I am having the same problem, only my search button does not work either. This is quite annoying for me since I reassigned my search key to open my messages from wherever im at, and because come on, the home button is like the most used button I have.

    I feel your pain. But I fixed it by just wiping data/cache and reinstalling the rom. Seems like a major bug but no one has talked about it.

    I'm running the leaked GB and get the home button issue from time to time. This morning I rebooted a few times and it didn't go away, so I cleared the Dalvik cache in the bootstrap and upon bootup it was fixed.

    I have lost the use of my home key - and am not certain that it is ROM related - the search key was not functioning when i purchased the rooted D1 and have had 'right side screen issues' all along - now migrating left -
    Question - is there anyway to re-assign another key (camera/volume) or perhaps create a widget or shortcut to emulate home? I'm running liquid0624 1.85 and it has done wonders to stabilize many issues on my phone - but having to back my way home - shuting down everything to get there-really-really -stinks...

    Look I cant use my phone at all without shutting down and now it goes directly my messages so I can't even see the home screen. I'm not as familiar as most so I'm lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated....but I mean like android galaxy for dummies type help...
    Thanks,
    Dixie
