iOS Home Button Shutdown not working!

This seems to be working fine for me. Which version of LC are you using? I just did a simple test using a put command and checking console output using LC 6.6.2 RC3. Tested in both the simulator and on a device. My shutdown handler triggers in both cases.

You might try a simple test like that with a put statement right at the beginning of your handler, if you haven’t done so already. If you don’t see any output in the console, then there’s definitely an issue and it should be reported to RunRev. But if you do, then you should be able to do a little debugging and try to figure out exactly where the problem lies.
