Is there a terminal command to go to the home screen?
I need to do this via ssh, so I cannot just push the "home" button, I need to send a command-line action..
am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -c android.intent.category.HOME
More info about shell commands: an archived version of the AndroidWiki page
Actually you can just push the "home" button
adb shell input keyevent KEYCODE_HOME
Consider taking at look at the following link: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/KeyEvent.html
input keyevent KEYCODE_HOME
