The sensor is the chips on the home button cable. Compare it to the old screen with the home button on it and you should see that one does not have the components on there.

If that is the case then you will need to transfer it via soldering.

Thanks for the answer, I doubt that the sensor was in the home key. I can't figure out what is the

Chip. Can you attach a picture.


My bad, the home button cable is soldered together with the screen.

It's just a bad digitizer then because most likely it didn't come with the IC required for the smart cover sensor.
