    no need to answer that... i got it... i thout the signal from the home button was goint throu one of the 3 connectors.. but it is not... in fact the is a 4th connector.. well it is sort of a connector...(2 pins sticking out and making contact...) and when i saw those pins.. i realized that i havent closed up my iphone completely... the screen and the motherboart wore connected but the screen assembly wasent in its proper place.. and because of that the 2 pins worent making a connection dose the home button wasent working... :D

    You found it. Also if you aren't ready to close it and are testing you can short the contacts with a screwdriver or something to simulate a home button press.
