Nope, the media cry-out made Apple shut that down. They tweaked their firmware such that when during a restore it detects a non-original, or should I say not THE original home button attached (it can be an Apple original but not the one that came with the phone) it will not brick the phone and throw error 53.

i changed 10 hoome buttons on i6 everyday and restore them

no error 53..

u need to make sure the cable running for home button under lcd plate is fine.. also the home button has to be of good quality.. aftermarket doesnt matter.
