Do you have clear instructions and tools how to do it

So do you need to move the chip to replace the home button?

You need to reball or replace the chip to repair Touch ID.

If the home button or its flex cable is broken then it's completely shot, short of taking it to an Apple store for a replacement.

On the other hand, it could also be caused by the home button's extension flex cable running through the back of the lcd, and/or a damaged camera/speaker flex cable on top. So make sure to check all those out carefully before resorting to the Apple store.

After reading through a lot of suggestions, here's one which sounded interesting to me. Low and behold, this solution has actually worked!! I have removed that single screw completely, restarted the phone, and the home button started working perfectly.

I loosened the screw behind the center of the home button (holding it to the metal bracket), and it magically works now. This may not fix a lot of them, but it worked for me. I was just tightening that screw snug, but must have been too snug.
