replaced the display with new home button assembly, new gasket, and holder - button works but fingerprint sensor not anymore - It would be great to have detailed instructions for the complete the home button assembly with all the different parts, not only the teardown for reference. - i.e. it seems you need to push the button through the gasket before assembly so the cable leaves inside and the order is glass-button-gasket-holder.
I tried to put it ‘inside’ the case but was not able to - at the end, I just glued it against the front glass.
I must have done something wrong with the new home-button assembly as the fingerprint sensor does not work anymore - However, I am not going to go through that repair again so passcode it is.
I second this - tore the home button cable during disassembly and ordered another home button assembly just to figure out that I need the gasket and holder as well as it was not included. -
My iOpener was not strong enough to open the screen but after reading about people using heatguns (which I had one lying around) I was able to open the case. - My screen was severely cracked which did not allow for a smooth working on the edges. - I finally got the screen off but damaged the home-button cable in the process - ordered a new one so repair is on hold until part arrives.
