    I've got a 3gs that the home button does not work, I've tried 3 dock connectors (fully working) and still the home button does not work, also tried a different home button (tried tested in another 3gs working) still no luck?

    So I'm thinking motherboard? But don't know what to do

    Also a note, I had a fully working 3G and I striped it to change rear case, when I assembled back the home button stopped working also? and tried all the above.

    Any help will be appreciated thanks.

    I don't know if this well work but try, There was a mention of resetting the home button by opening a native app. like weather or stocks and after the app is open to hold down the power bottom until the power slide appears, at that time release the power bottom and hold the home button until the app closes. this well reset the home bottom.

    Hope this helps, it worked for my Iphone 4 .
