    Default Midframe/Home button interchangeable between 3G and 3GS?
    I have a 3G with a broken screen and LCD, if I put a 3GS digitizer and LCD into the midframe, would everything work properly (on a 3GS phone of course)?

    NO! The LCD and DIgi are not compatible. The actual midframe, number 3 cable, and home button are but you CAN NOT put a digi/glass and LCD from a 3GS onto a 3G

    One issue though, I'm not sure if the cheap replacement digitizer's home button whole was too small, but the button was sticky after installation, swapped it out with a 3gs button, same problem. I think I fixed it externally, I took my spare button and inverted it over the installed button and pushed down a few times hoping the installed button would line up, it did. Not sure if it was the digitizer or the frames problem, or something else.
