Home Button ribbon cable snapped

Hello so I’m currently replacing the screen and I have appeared to use more force on the adhesive of the home button, and the ribbon broke off. Is it possible to solder them back together?

Hello, I really don’t think there is a way to solder the ribbon cable because the wires are very thin, close to each other and they have to be covered with an isolator material like plastic to prevent them to touch each other.

It really would be easier to order a new home button. Although u won’t get Touch ID back, you will get Home functions back. https://www.ebay.com/itm/USA-Universal-H...
