My Iphone's home button wasn't working. The phone would stay in recovery mode, no matter how many times I tried to restore it. I was afraid that the home button wasn't working, so I tried to replace it.
The repair went smoothly. There are many parts within the phone, so staying organized is critical. Many of the screws are easy to lose. I successfully completed the repair, but the home button still doesn't work. I am experiencing the same problems.
Stay organized while doing the repair. I marked down on a sheet of paper where each part came from and the step assigned to that part. This helped me during the assembly of the phone.
