    Backgrounder for 3GS won't switch to home screen

    Advertisement



    With backgrounder to return back to the home screen you have the option of holding either the power button or the home button until the appropriate icon appears (depending on the setting). The problem I'm having is that when I have it set on the home screen setting, when I hold the button down it goes to the voice command. If I have backgrounder set on the power button control, when I hold it down it goes to the power off slider screen. Any ides why I cannot get either to work. I'm running 3.1.2.

    I would try something simple as a reboot, if that don't work, un-install Backgrounder and re-install it

    or change the way that the home button is treated by the phone in the options.

    Hey Beeshabo! Yes the options available now are sick! I'll probably post a couple app questions here in the next day or so, but everything is running great now. Thanks for all of your help getting me up to speed on some of this stuff!

    background info on insomnia. prevents the phone from going to sleep and disconnecting you from services apparently.
