Something is telling me you broke the home button flex cable, when you put it in your new display assembly. Guessing you bought the cheaper one, to save $15. Cause there are all these guides, right? How hard can it be? So either you broke the home button flex cable, pretty easy to do. Or, you broke the connectors on the Lightning dock. So, you need to test, somehow, which is the problem. I would advise buying parts again from ifixit
