    I found out what caused it. Earlier today google pushed an update for their google quick search app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...quicksearchbox ), this update broke my home button.

    So uninstall the app and you should be fine for now.
    Just want to say this also fixed it for me. I have an S3 with 4.4.2. Hopefully other S3s effected by this update will find this thread, because it took me a night of searching.

    When I uninstalled the updates it just updated again later. You have to disable the app, once doing so then your phone will once again be yours! Thank you to whoever sorted this out! (if only 25 mins earlier so the lady love hadn't selected Maleficient to watch while I sorted out my issues... ugh)

    Thanks for the help guys! I had the exact same problem with my Galaxy S4. Uninstalling the Google quick search (not just the update) worked for me too! Thanks again!

    Hello, reedntly had this problem with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. It seems that Google's latest update was causing the difficulty. Go into play store > google > uninstall and it should remove it's latest update. I found that this sorted the problem and the message no longer appeared. It must be a fault with Google's software. Hopefully this works for you too.

    Just like to say thanks as I had the same "com.android.systemui has stopped" error message on my Samsung Galaxy S4. However i could not find 'google quick search' in my list of Apps but instead forced stopped and uninstalled updates and disabled 'Google' or rather 'Google Search' from my Apps list and so far the Home button now works as normal. Google Play has not tried to reinstall it again as I presume this App was installed as part of the ROM pack. 'Google Search' does now come up in the 'disabled' category in the Application Manager.

    As a huge dumbass, i actually soft reset my phone twice to see if it'll fix the problem, a few hours later i realized it was this google update that ruined my home button.

    Curse you, Google!

    Worked perfectly! went to play store and removed updates. then went into app manager and disabled app. May reenable if bugs turn up in other app.
    Thanks for your help!
