I did everything correctly.. But the home button won't work.
No clue what to do. What now?
Are you sure you put it all back together correctly? I really cant see any other reason why it would not work.
I just found out why. The two bumped gold divets that connect the button to the motherboard - one of the little bumps broke off..
Sp1 and Sp2..
I am assuming you're using an iPhone 3G/3Gs? You're going to need to purchase a new home button flex cable. These can be obtained for five bucks on eBay.
Alternatively, you can just replace the whole LCD assembly which is easier but a hell of a lot more expensive.
If this is on a 3G/3GS you will probably want to order a new glass/digitizer while you're at it. You'll have to remove the glass from the plastic mid-frame in order to remove the home button.
You may be able to take the glass off without any problems, but it wouldn't hurt to have an extra in case it cracks. If you are careful & end up getting it off without any damage, well then you just have an extra in case you ever drop it & break it.
For $8-9 the extra insurance can't hurt.
