SGS4 home button stops doing it's thing: hardware or software
My phone is a rooted T-Mobile SGH-M919. REcently, the home button stopped doing what it's been doing for over a year: long press-->running applications; top-->home screen; double tap-->something else.
I have experimented with various launchers, and something called a Go-Locker.
The button works as expected when the phone is booting. When I tap over and over and over again, still nothing, except once in a while, it might respond. PUsing the button may cause an event, as though the screen were tapped, in some cases.
Just before this happened, I used an app called 360CleanDroid, and may have removed some crucial applications, thinking I was removing bloat.
Does any of this mean anything? I suspect a crucial application is missing that handles this key binding business.
Plan is to attempt to return to stock, and perform whatever updates.
