Disclaimer: Opening controller will void the warranty... and you may break it.. so do not do this unless you know what you are doing!!!

Unable to figure how to disable Home button on the controller from opening Google home in my tablet, I decided it was time to hack the hardware...

1) Open the controller by removing 6 screws from the back.

2) carefully peel back the tape holding the contact for the home button:
3) Find a piece of plastic paper and insert between the contacts.

4) Glue tape back and reassemble the controller.

Good luck! :D

PS: Thanks for this great App. I am planing to have some fun with the kids on Xmas
