I know this has been addressed before about the home button going crazy. It acts like it is getting pushed multiple times over and over. It mainly does this at random times and mostly when the phone has come out of sleep mode. Being that this is my 4th Cappy that I might be returning due to hardware issues. I am hesitant on returning because I am worried about getting a refurb with more serious issues. Every Captivate I seem to get has hardware issues.
I am wanting to put together a thread to figure out if this issue is due to changes in Kernel or if it is a true hardware issue that can not be fixed but maybe we can find a workaround.
I want to start finding out if there is a thresh-hold that can be adjusted on the button. Make the button not so sensitive to see if this effect will help anything.
Can this button be disabled altogether? Disable the home button and use the search button instead.
I never had this issue till I flashed a Froyo kernel. That is why I am skeptical on the hardware failure.
