u have probably demaged home buton FPC connector on MBO, flex cable on metal shield or just home button.

To eliminate start from FPC connector on MBO (Mother Board); check for any rip off component and for any demage on connector. Then check the flex cable on metal shield. look closly and u will probably find something.

If u dont find it try hard reset.

If it doesnt help i will recomend it to take to Apple store, bcs if u change home button touch id will never work again and u will be facing with error 5 on iTunes once u instal new iOS

Hope it helps, cheers
