    Did you securely fasten the front bezel back on? For the home button, the connection points to the board touch when you put the front glass/bezel back on.

    Try installing a new home button. Or you can bend the contacts on your current home button so they make contact with the dock assembly. This might help.

    You might have broken the Flex Connector on your Home Button

    You might have broken the Flex prongs on the Home Button Connector.

    You might break the glass if you try not to be careful with replacement.

    Did you separate the glass from the plastic frame? But yeah, make sure the button has the connection with the dock connector board, and all cables are seated properly.
