    Bit more info needed, your Device info says you have a 3g, if so then the home button is held in by the digitizer glass - BUT isn't part of it - in fact is is a seperate button and underlying flex cable terminating at twin copper leaf springs on the underside of the plastic tray the glass digitizer sits on. Normally on a 3g if you replace the glass you do so leaving the home button in place, leaving it ready to be held in position by the new glass. So if you have pulled the glass off and the home button at the same time you have broken the home button - and need to get this to fix it:-
