Hey all, so here's my problem.
After switching the black back plate off of my iPhone 5 to a gold one, & installed a new screen that wasn't cracked, I've had problems since.
My home button, nor lock button work. Volume, vibrate, etc etc all still do currently work.
I purchased & installed a new home button ribbon, but that didn't work.
Yesterday, I tried installing iOS 7, but my phone got stuck into a recovery loop. Mind you I have no working buttons, so getting 6.1.4 back on & out of recovery mode took about 6 hours...
Any ideas to why these buttons don't work? & to why I cannot install iOS 7?
Thank you much!
