    Newbie to the forum.


    I have this problem:

    everytime i restart my device, for couple of minutes, it seems like the home button is pressed randomly,

    for example, i open the play store, update my apps, and suddenly it goes back to my home screen,
    after pressing the play store again, it goes back to where it was.

    it happens not only with play store,
    it happens with every application,
    for several minutes

    (playing a game, goes to home screen, get back to game, and so on...)

    perhaps it's an application running in the background?

    any help would be appritiated,
    thanks

    That is an odd one. Since it only happens for a few minutes after a reboot, it doesn't sound like a hardware issue. Maybe stop rebooting?

    Seriously, though, did this start only recently? If so, have you added any new programs to your phone about the time this started?

    i think it's about two month or so that i have this problem,
    i thought that my last (yesterday) system update (stock/rooted) would fix it, but it didn't (problem is non root related one).

    i just don't know which app causing that.

    I think what you're going to have to do is uninstall a few apps, reboot, and see if it's fixed. If not, uninstall a few more, and repeat. When it's fixed, you'll know it was one of those last few apps you took off.

    Well, I would look in Application Manager, at the running apps tab, and start with those, since it likely to be something that's actually running in the background.

    Did you perform a Factory Reset after the OTA to 4.1.2? If not, I'd suggest that as the first course of action (being sure that you sync all of your data; backup any Call Logs, SMS/MMS, game progress, etc first).
