Replacing iPhone 4 (GSM) Home Button

by Merell

My Problem

Worn out home button; only getting maybe 1 in 5 presses

My Fix

Straight forward repair. Took 2 hours end-to-end, with the longest time (30 minutes) getting the display separated from the frame.

My Advice

Watch the video, and read thru the guide at least once before starting. Have a container for all of the hardware. I noticed that all of the screws are 000 size, so have the proper driver before digging in.
