Any way to "hijack" home button on iPod touch to assign a roomie command?

I am making custom 3D printed “sleeves” with built-in qi wireless charging and matching dock (see attached picture) to use with always-on iPod touches dedicated to Roomie at my home and I would love to know if there is a way to assign a function to the home button on the front. The volume buttons already work great as dedicated hardware volume buttons, but it would be great to be able to use the home button as a shortcut to the Roomie Dashboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


The home button overrides are all related to Guided Access afaicr. So you can basically disable the Home button.

Thanks Will. I had already done that, but I was wondering if I could actually make it useful.
Thanks anyway!
Been using roomie for many years and love it!



I am interested in buying these 3D printed cases for the iPod. Let me know if you are interested in making a few extra and selling them? Alternatively if you can share the designs and I may be able to have them made? Thank you.
