Answer to: broke a pin on my home buttonRight, so I had the same problem and scoured the net for a cure. Couldn't find one but remembered someone saying something about tinfoil. I gave it a shot and it totally worked! Open the phone carefully with the screen facing down, make sure you don't disconnect any cables. Grab a tiny piece of foil and fold it over and over until it is about the size of the missing prong plate. You're folding it so it has bulk and will make the connection with the other side, you don't want it super big; so flatten a little with pliers. Place carefully on the plate and close, ensuring that you do not move the phone or jiggle the foil out of place. Viola! You should have a working home button again. Hope this helps.
