Afaik if you want to override the home button behaviour, you cannot do it programmatically without changing the Android core code - for the home button it's defined in PhoneWindowManager.java

Somebody found a solution to do it programatically, but in my tests it didn't work (on emulator, 2.1 avd). The API part might be deactivated (API removed as mentioned by one Google engineer) anyway. See this post:
