Post originale di: Ted ,
I accidentally heated the home button too much and I think it deformed the shape/size of it a little bit. This caused it to not "pop" in and out as normal. If you look under the button you'll see it has a silver contact that goes in and out on the button itself and a silver contact on the phone as well. I folded a small amount of aluminium foil and slipped it in between the two contacts to help give the button something to spring up and down on. Too thick amount of foil it won't be able to be depressed, too thin it won't pop back up. Find a happy medium and it'll work fine. I did this while the adhesive was pretty fresh so I just pulled the glass off with the suction cup and experimented with the right amount of foil padding. I gently heated the screen back up and firmly pressed it back together for good measure.
