  • Hi Hugh, my iPhone 7 has been on a constant boot loop after my home button stopped working. Before I replace the home button/display, will the process in your video erase all of my data? I am just worried about losing my data since I have no backup. I'll appreciate it so much if you reply!!

  • Instead of it being Bluetooth you can just get a normal home button from another board and it just won’t have touch iD and thats it.

  • Apple sell trillions of these every year and they have to up the greed by keeping down Right To Repair a bit more every single year. Let people replace their own damn parts! They will be ruined by OS updates blocking out old devices for the same greedy reason eventually anyway, so what's the harm?

  • HI, there is now a Rev4 jc home button available. However, I got a home button from ebay earlier this year, it worked without bluetooth for a while. like Rev 4 JC button will do, without bluetooth, according to its seller on ebay. In my case, I used an update from apple, later after the install of h/button, Apple blocked the home button from working??? In conclusion , the Rev 4 JC button version doesn't use bluetooth, according to its seller, so this should work fine, and be easier to install. With the exception of fingerprint id, the home button should work most of the other functions. In my view , Apple should not be allowed to block a third party repair of the home button or screen, as you who are the legal owner of the phone, and should have the legal right to take it to whome you like to get it repaired. Greedy as Apple are , they charge a whopping £154. 44 for a complete new screen and home button. Icould get a second user phone for that price, and have some change. Shame on you apple ripping customers off.

  • So I have a iPhone 8 that one of my friend gave me but it is rose gold with a white face and home button. I don’t like it and want to do a switch over to black. Meaning that the home button will have to be replaced as well. ReadinSg the description for a new one. It has a disclaimer stating this replacement is for decoration only and it won’t function on my 8. Am I reading this wrong or is this true? If so is there any other way around it. Please if any one has some solutions to my problem. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Regards

  • Hi Hugh ! I subscribed to your channel since last year and you still impress and inspired me to fix many devices like you do. This is a really good job, furthermore with passion ! I've got a question about the Touch ID, can we fix the issue by reprogramming it with your JC Pro1000S, or this is not possible ? I've been looking for some videos about this process, but all videos I've seen showed that the only way to fix it is by soldering an other part of the Touch ID.

  • My iPhone 8 home button is broken and the phone is disabled. I plugged it in to itunes and restored it now it says press the home button to continue. If I replace this button there is no way I pair it without passing the get started screen or whatever its called. This part is not mentioned. How do you get the button work after reset? I would appreciate any comment. Thanks.

    • @Hugh Jeffreys thanks for the reply Hugh. Very frustrating. Even the 3rd and 4 gen wouldn't work then? Have you tried one of these MaximalPower external lightning home buttons? would it work to pass the upgrade screen? Is there any way to make iphone 8 home button work again? Btw I have contacted you on Instagram regarding this. You can ignore my message there since you replied here. Thanks heaps.

  • To anybody (nobody ask) there is a way to bring Touch ID back and to do that you need to use 3 i tools and get the Touch ID code then you get a special card/ Mechanic from jc tools to plug in the new Touch ID button the burn/write the Touch ID code to the button and the iPhone will think this is a original home button.

  • If you can just swap any homebutton, getting access to a phone would be a lot lot easier! So its a pain, but much more secure... BTW, if they would not break, they would not need replacement...that may be a better approach. IS the button paired with the screen assy or with the motherboard?
