How To: Replace an iPhone 4 Home Button

We had a lot of requests for this repair, so it’s finally here!

A broken or unresponsive home button on your iPhone 4 can be really annoying because it’s practically the only button on the phone. In this video we show you how to replace the home button on a GSM iPhone 4. The repair is similar for the CDMA version, but either way make sure you follow the step by step guide on our site when you’re performing your repair.

She forgot to tell to remove the "Vibrator" before the screen can be removed. It is held by 2 screws.

Lots and lots of negative comments on this video. I can see that there are gaps in the video when it comes to detailed steps, but the step by step Repair Guide is invaluable. I must say the iPhone 4 is ANNOYING but why complain about that on this comment strain. The video and guide worked great. I haven't done this very much and I accomplished it in right around an hour and a half. Yes, it took a while, but not all of us have $750 for a new phone.
