You will need adb to run these commands, it can be downloaded here: SDK Platform Tools
Download and unzip the platform tools. Open a terminal or command prompt and go to the directory where you downloaded the platform tools, then run one or more of the commands below.

./adb shell sh /data/data/flar2.homebutton/logcat.sh

Simulate keycodes (must run this command each time you reboot your phone)
