Take the front assembly off again and disconnect the 3 cables from the board, flip it over and look at the reverse of the home button, there should be two pins coming out of the home button, check they're both there and are aligned as I believe both have to make contact with the contacts on the dock connector to make the button work.

Iif they are both present and line up, try giving the contacts on the dock a clean, they are on the left hand side, very close to the bottom of the phone on cable '4' side.

If the pins on the home button are fine, you clean the dock connectors and it still doesn't work the home button itself may be damaged.
