How to replace the iPhone 3G Home Button?!? Guides?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I managed to make a Franken-phone with two 3G. One had a bad screen, but great exterior and the other one was pretty beated up but the screen was recently changed, so I merged them into one.


The only problem is the home button contact is broken, so I need to replace the home button from the good screen with the working home button of the bad screen.


Anybody has instructions, pictures, video, etc? I'm not that great of a modder so I need help! I heard it can "slide out", but how I don't get it :confused:

Had a friend with a broken home button, it's possible to do it, but it looked complicated... (hardest part was getting it detached from the screen) You can open it up and get to the contacts fairly easily, maybe they just got dirty, or bent a little. If its jailbroke you can modify the volume buttons to act as a the home button with a app called activator.
