    Default My home button
    So I just installed a new screen/lcd/digitizer on my 3gs, 16gig. Everything went pretty much great except that the home button only works if I press really hard. Is there something perhaps you know that I don't ? Thanks in advance

    There's a metal disc behind your home button that is easy to knock loose when you switch the glass. My bet would be it either fell off or it isn't centered correctly.

    Sounds to me like you have a bad home button flex

    Or your prongs are sitting right

    Okay so you know how sometimes you do things and you feel a little bit foolish, but not a lotta bit foolish? So I was cleaning the frame on another 3gs and then I noticed a tiny little EXTRA metal disc on the back of the home button. Well guess what? I found the orginal metal disc for the 3gs with the "bad" home button, and now it works just as it should. Mr.Cunningham would be proud of me for not calling a piece of electronics "bad" lol. Thanks guys
