    My home button quit working!

    So....when I push the home button (soft key) haptic feedback occurs, but nothing happens. If I long press to pull up last apps, still nothing. I know it has to be a software setting, but I can't find it....any takers?

    It doesn't sound like a setting issue to me, you may have to make warranty call.

    I've done a power/down volume/push on the trackball. Is this what you are suggesting to try?

    It *IS* a software issue.

    I found rebooting on mine DID NOT help.

    So I did a factory data reset (under Settings -> Privacy)

    That fixed it.

    It happened after I installed AMON_RA recovery image, ran a Nandroid backup or after I ran BackupForRootUsers. No idea which one.

    Hope that helps the next person that Google's this problem

    Sadly, factory reset seems to have caused my problem, not fixed it. My phone crashed and got stuck in a reboot loop, necessitating the factory reset. Afterwards, I had the proble the OP mentioned, no exceptions. Moving to Froyo has not fixed it. Would appreciate any suggestions, as this effectively wipes out the multitasking that is a huge part of the attraction of Android. Thanks.

    I have the same problem ! Anybody knows how to change that setting ?
    I noticed that my home button is only working when I'm calling somebody. Otherwise I can't get to the home screen.

    Sadly I had the same problem

    BUT I COULD SOLVE IT!

    I noticed that the problem happen's when the notification of law space in phone storage apear.. so the low space in phone storage stops the functionality of the home button..
    So I uninstalled some apps to have some space in the phone storage.. then I tried the home button and finaly IT WORKED!

    I hope it works with u too

    Alright, so I am having this same issue, along with a few others. This is the thread I posted before.

    http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...l-missing.html

    My question is, if I go ahead with your above mentioned factory data reset, do I need to backup all my files, contacts, photos, videos etc? or is that all covered if backup is selected in the settings?
