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 thought the government got involved
