I replaced the home button on my iPhone 4 and while putting it back together I noticed the below part had fallen off and I don't know where it goes. It appears to be a bumber and made of soft rubber. It is approx 8X3X1.5 mm and the slot is offset to one side.

Hard to tell since the picture isn't clear enough. Just head over to ifixit and look over their tear down pictures, maybe you'll see it.

Is it the part that used to help your camera focus? :rolleyes:

it attaches to the logic board where the screen cable sits.

The above posters got it right. Don't worry, they fall out whenever I repair an iPhone also. I just throw them out.
I'm gonna go with this one. The phone is working fine and replacing the home button was a PITA and I don't want to take it back apart.
