Homebutton assembly differences throughout iPad generations
I was just wondering:
I know that the iPad 4 comes with a new flexcable which is easy to be damaged during the process of removing the touch assembly.
As far as I know, the assembly consists of:
-the physical homebutton
-the mounting bracket
-the hold-thingy which will be glued to the touch assembly
-the flex cable
Since the main difference is the new flex cable, my question is:
Are the other parts of the assembly the same/compatible throughout the generations 2,3 and 4?
So could I use the same physical homebutton in an iPad 4 aswell as in an iPad 2?
Same thing for the mounting bracket and the hold-thingy (sorry for the unprecise description, English is not my mother tongue)
Thanks for your help!

The electronic switch is the same for Gen 2 and 3. I'd say that all three of the current generations share the same adhered mounting brackets and home buttons. Only the 4 uses a ribbon because the new port isn't "wide" enough to contact previous Gen electronic switches.
