I've broken the home bottom flex cable. Am I doomed now?

I've borken the home bottom flex, right next to the finger scanner as I was replacing a screen.

I have purchased a new replacement home button, but the finger scanner does not work.

Is there a way to replace the bottom and get the finger scanner to read anything?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The Touch ID function will lose if the original home button was replaced.

Also NEVER reinstall/update iOS again until Apple fix the phone for you, or the phone dies altogether.
