Parts included with home button

Hello, I've recently been interested in replacing the home button for my iPod Touch 5th generation, I have already ripped out the entire home button due to a manufacturing flaw and all that is remaining is the orange/yellow flex circuit of sorts that transmits the impulse to the motherboard. Sadly I recently lost the dome switch that would rest on top of the orange circuit and I was wondering if the home button that is available for purchase comes with it included. Thank you in advanced!

Update (01/15/2017)

The home button that iFixit sells here only seems to include the parts seen in Step 14 of the home button repair guide. Other parts may be part of front panel assembly, but it is hard to tell without further photos.

I have contacted them through email but they redirected me to the forums and such, any tips ?


Hmm that's not the best. Would it be possible for you to include some images so we can get a better idea of what you are asking?


Yep! Link to screenshot:

So the dome switch (the gold circle) was the part I lost.


Thanks, see update above.


%#*@, that sucks! I was hoping to not spend $14.99 on a new dome switch from another company , but I guess I'll need to... my iPod does that random shut off where you need to force start it holding down home button and power, but since I don't have a home button it makes it difficult and time consuming due to the fact that I need to wait until the battery dies out. Most likely a bug from my old jailbreak and hopefully an update can resolve it!
