    Hey guys

    I have an ipod touch 2nd generation 4.2.1 MC, and my home button stopped working. It's out of warranty, can't afford a replacement. I don't want to take it apart to fit a new home button because I have smashed my screen and I can't really afford the parts either. I've heard of an app home button but can't find one on the app store. I have been trying to alter (JB) the ipod touch but im having no luck because of the 4.2.1 and lack of home button to put it in dpu mode. Also itunes will not restore my ipod.

    Any help or pointers would be much appreciated, as my eyes are square with spending days trawlin the internet.
    Thank you in advance,
    Katie x

    There's not much you can do, it's busted. Parts are relatively cheap for the iPod Touch and iPhone, check the link below. You get the Glass/Digitizer, Home button flex cable, and opening tools and adhesive all for $14.85 with free shipping. I've bought from them and they're great sellers, always cheap and quick shipping. I'd give it a try!
