How to avoid error 53 when replacing the motherboard on iPhone 6

so in simple words :

-iPhone X is like new everything works but has Logic board is bad.

- iPhone Y has a bad LCD and bad housing but Logic board works .

As per the relationship between Error 53, home button and logic board, some say that every home button is paired to it's original logic board, others say that it's the hardware/flex ribbon on the back plate that is paired with the logic board and not the actual button itself .

so to avoid E53 when replacing the logic board on phone X, do I have to :

1-also remove the back plate with the Flex ribbon and home button from phone Y to go with their respective logic board on phone X ?

2-just replace the home button alone ?

3-replace the back plate with the flex ribbon on the working LCD but keep the home button ?

I hope that option 3 applies as the two phone are of different colors and would not want a black phone with white home button, but if it's not, so let it be !

Move the home button, and long flex from the bad phone to the screen of the good phone. Or, just don't restore or update and you'll avoid error 53. Or take the good phone and spend $109 at Apple to get a new screen and paired home button
