Navigate to home tab from visualforce page ?

I have visusalforce button, on click of it navigation should go back to home tab. i.e. /home/home.jsp. I tried this with javascript and pagereference method. With page reference method nothing is happening, but with js it saying "URL no longer exists."  Below is the js i used,
var returnURL;
		window.onload =  function() {
			returnURL = gup('retURL');
		};    
		function redirectBack() {
			window.location.href = '/' + returnURL;
		}
Pagerefernece i used ,
pageRef = new PageReference('/home/home.jsp');
return pageRef;
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Try this with the pageReference method:

PageReference pageRef = new PageReference('/home/home.jsp');
pageRef.setRedirect(true);
return pageRef;

Thanks

Nothing happens, still the same. It stays in same page. I have tried this already.

Please provide me with the commandButton code, what you have return, and the Action method on the controller code.

Thanks
Nitin

<apex:commandButton value="Cancel" reRender="pgbbb" status="MyStatuss" action="{!redirectToPreviousPage}"/> 

public PageReference redirectToPreviousPage() {
    	PageReference pageRef;
             pageRef = new PageReference('/home/home.jsp');
             pageRef.setRedirect(true);
    	     return pageRef;  
}
