    My iPod touch 4G's home button has jammed in, cannot press it or pop it out. Of course, to close apps I need to restart it and its becoming a pain.
    I want to install an app off Cydia to close apps, so is there anyway to Jailbreak this on IOS 5.1 ? I can't get it into DFU mode obviously so any help appreciated
    Never bothered jailbreaking since the very first way of doing it on the original iphone.

    Cheers

    Since you're on iOS 5.1, A jailbreak at this time is impossible. 5.1 fixed security flaws that allowed users on 5.0.1 to jailbreak it. The iPhone Dev Team is currently working on a jailbreak for this but at the time no public jailbreak is available. If I were you I would take your iPod to an Apple Store and see if they could repair it for you, They will often fix that kind of stuff for free.

    Thats not true. you can definetly jb iOS 5.1, but it will be tethered, a big issue if you have no home button to press.

    My home button is spoilt too but i used the assistive touch it's in 5.0.1 firmware. go to setting > general > scroll down below and click on Accessibility > then scroll down below again click on Assistive Touch > then slide to ON the Assistive touch and something will appear on ur screen....that can be used as alrernative home button.

    ^^ Semi-Tethered, I don't mind. If it's tethered, I don't even bother with them. They really are a nightmare
