Start by double checking your work by going through this guide.

For the Home Button, did you purchase a replacement screen with a button already installed? If yes, then that is why the Touch ID no longer works. You have to install the original Home Button for Touch ID. If you did transfer yourHB, then you may have damaged the thin flex cable. Look at it with a magnifying glass to see if there are any tears.

As for the sound issues, take a close look at the Lightning Port flex assembly. It may be incorrectly connected or damaged.
