  • Repairing iphones are just uselessly hard, sometime back I literally disassembled an android with just a small screw driver without breaking anything (it was old so no glass back and water proofing)

  • I recently repaired my cracked iphone 8 plus and replaced it with a new screen and ran into a home button issue. I ordered the "Keytas" iphone 8 plus replacement screen and used the original home button for the repair. After the replacement the home button wasn't letting me click for some reason even though the touch ID was still working (home button was working just fine before replacement). Now I'm worried because I have another iphone 8 plus that needs a screen replacement but I'm afraid I might run into this same issue again. Does anyone know a what might be causing this issue?

  • I have done so many iPhone repairs, but this is insane. I surely would break so many things inside that phone trying to get everything back in, that is to say I don’t lose a piece first. Well done, you have fully replaced the enclosure on what I believe is the most difficult iPhone to work on(I usually let my coworkers handle the iPhone 8 models).
