Unable to activate Touch ID and to charge phone


I tried to replace my iPhone 5s battery but now the Touch ID is not working and I am also not being able to charge the phone.

While trying to remove the battery I think I damaged the cable support bracket:

The home button connector on the charging port assembly is damaged.

You will need to replace the charging port assembly which should also fix your charging issue at the same time.

Here is a guide and where you can get the part in case you want to buy a replacement part from iFixit:
