You absolutely can adjust the touch pressure from lite to heavy and also turn the hard button off. Then my home button worked fine once I unlocked it. When it's on the lock screen you will think that the home button is still hard to get open, do this, don't tap it but rather use your thumb or finger and I think the thumb works better and just put your thumb on the the home button and actually pinch it with your fingers on the front and thumb on the button and squeeze it and it doesn't have to be squeezed hard at all or you can just rest your finger or thumb on it and push lightly, not a tap but just a push. It works great for me now.
