Home button won't go to home screen

2013-03-30, 17:04 PM


Several times recently I have noticed that pressing the home button will not take me to the home screen.  Instead, it just reloads the app I'm currently using.  It does this vertical drop down transition and won't take me to the home screen.



Has anyone else noticed this?



Thanks,

Mike

Mike, does your phone still do this when you are in safe mode?  If not, then you have a third party application that is the root of the problem.  I also suggest, if you have not already, to perform a forced reboot on your phone by concurrently depressing the power on button and the volume down button for approximately 10 seconds.    --- Dan

yes, mine too.  But I was on 4.0.3 rooted and processed the updaate to 4.1.2 without unrooting, then rooted and restored from (name removed) and I think that is the issue.  rerooted with (name removed) and now the home button works.  Still working on how to process a backup without screwing it up again.

Mike, I have never noticed this myself, are you running any launchers, such as Launcher Pro or something?  Sometimes those tend to not work well with some of the buttons.  If not, I would agree with Dan, try safe mode for long enough to determine if the behavior continues.  Could be a misbehaving app somewhere.

I'll give safe mode a try.  It keeps happening occasionally.  I haven't installed any launchers yet, trying to go slow on reinstalling apps.



Thanks

I too have never experienced this myself.  Like the others before me, I suspect an errant app.  Please let us know if Safe Mode eliminates the issue.

I have experienced this when docked in the car. It always returns to the dock screen. This suggests that an app is to blame...

This happened again over the weekend and what I noticed is that the phone would not exit vehicle mode for a while.  I suspect that is the issue.  Vehicle mode is designed to come back to the dock screen when in the dock but it's supposed to exit when out.
