Is it possible that something is damaged where the home button connects to the logic board?

Chosen Solution

If you power it down and it auto restarts its because your home button is stuck in the "pushed down" position.

Open back up your phone (I know it sucks), break it down to the home button assembly and ensure that nothing is stuck there.
