Title:

Ripped one of the cables on LCD, but what is it exactly?

Text:

Hi!
 
I have disassembled an iPhone 7 but when taking of the screen one of the two flex cables from the lcd screen got ripped. The cable that got ripped runs upwards under the LCD part, to the top. The LCD and touch still work. (fun to know that the LCD and Touch both go through one flex cable). But it disabled the home button from working. I am trying to understand how the part that I broke runs underneath the hood and what I can do to solve it. Can somebody explain it to me with pictures where the cable runs to and how it works?
