Broken home button, yet stuck on 'press home button to upgrade' screen

Home button didn't work after screen replacement, touch assist popped up spontaneously and then left (unsure of when, I didn't have phone). Now, phone is stuck on 'press home to upgrade' but I'm without a home button. Just want the phone in working condition of course:

I have tried:

replacing home button

Replacing screen and home button

Switching with a new sim

DFU mode factory reset

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

iPhone 7 home button is unique to the phone (tied to the CPU) if you cant fix the original home button check its not the screen with the original screen and original home button see if it works? Ive seen some new screens that kill the home button or at least stop it working with that screen.

Also im sure if you restart the phone it pops you straight to the option without having to press the home button???
