Also available at Google Express for $10 with code FALLSAVINGS for an extra 20% off for first time users.

It's $15 to free shipping on Google Express. A good filler might be this iFixit Precision Tweezer Set - https://express.google.com/u/0/pr...30_6136318

Apple is known to do things exactly like this to deter people from repairing their own devices. I believe it was a recent iOS update that disabled the home button for people using aftermarket parts. This is very common among MacBooks, iPhones, etc. Check out Louis Rossmann, he has extensive info on the stuff that Apple pulls.

replaced an iPhone 7 screen and now the home button won't work Mad
Looks like apple disabled it by replacing with 3rd party screens.

Good luck

For real, that's a bummer. I haven't researched much, just know I need tools and will be looking for a screen here soon.

Seems odd replacing a screen would disable he home button. Unless the home button was broken during the repair?

Anyhow hope you can get your to work.

And did you just purchase any cheap screen or particular one?

hmmm
the item is: 292676182535 on Ebay

https://www.ebay.com/itm/iPhone-7...2749.l2649

I doubt I messed it up because I took off the aftermarket screen, put back the broken one and the home button worked.
