    make sure the 2 hinge the screws screw on the #4 antenna assembly is ON TOP of the other 2 hinge that's connected to the chrome bezel.

    If the hinge on the chrome bezel are above the hinge on #4 assembly, it wouldn't be making contact with the bottom part of the home button.

    lmk how it goes.

    you have to tell me more what happened. Water damage? droped it? did you ever disassembled your phone? if so, did you ever take out speaker assembly that connects the #4 cable?

    They are referring to a 3G or 3GS I believe in this thread. If the home button stops working on a 2G, then it requires the main Flex cable to be replaced.
    If I helped you, hit the button or be Banned!
