gregavellino, the touch ID sensor is designed to be secure and it is uniquely paired with each specific phone. There is no way to restore that particular function. Read more about that on here. and on here as well. "unique logic board in each iPhone 5S and the fingerprint data is stored on the A7 chip" To make it work you would have to at least reball the A7 from the old logic board. Hope this helps, good luck.
