Since this has killed me for 3 days I figured i'd try to help anyone who got stuck in my situation. If it the button keep activating after installing the digitizer the issue is a grounding short circuit. In my case the ipad worked great until you installed the digitizer back on the unit and sealed it then the random presses started. Turned out to be the ribbon cable for the home button has an exposed gold strip. The home button in this A1489 is soldered to the digitizer and only one plug links them to the board. I covered the strip past the home button all the way to the end of the digitizer with Kapton tape and have not had a problem since.
