Stuck at restore screen and home button doesn't work.

I am try to get data off an iphone 8. The owner dropped their phone and cracked the home button, afterward the phone just boot-looped. I put the phone in recovery mode and force updated. The update was going smoothly but now I am stuck at a screen that says “press home to recover”. I can’t press home though because the home button doesn’t work. I know you can’t replace the home buttons on these.

Does any one know any way to force a home button press? Could I short to pins on the logicboard or something?

Ultimately I have advised the phones owner to take it to Apple. Apple had previously wanted to wipe the device because it was bootlooping. Now that I have the phone at the restore screen I think they will just replace the home button and screen.

I didn’t end up trying the bluetooth work around as I didn’t want apple to refuse to work on it and soldering stuff to the device was sure to irk them. The bluetooth home button work around could still be a potential solution if someone else runs into this problem. I am skeptical about whether to phone is going to treat the “return to home” function the same way it treats a home button press from a working home button, at least at that stage of setting up the phone.

Thank you to everyone who responded.

If your home button is broken and stucked on restore screen "press home button to start"

Connect your phone to itunes

Then tap to accessibility

Now your voice over is on

Double tap on "press home to continue"

And follow the steps double tapping every step to reach home

Hopefully it will help

You can't get to the accessibility tab if it's on the press home to upgrade screen. What now?

Thanks for the response. I didn't realize these were a thing. So there must be someway to simulate a home button press through the charge port. So you could probably do something simalar over a usb with the right software. I wonder if such a thing exists. I'm in Australia so ordering one of those in could be pretty expensive. The customer is pretty desperate thought so they probably pay it. Thanks.

No problem. If my answer helped you out please select it as solved.

I tried one and it didn't work :(

von

I’m not really sure than. I guess your last choice is just to go to Apple. Sry to hear that

I see you are doing this for someone else and you are new to iFixit, so I would say this is beyond your capability at this stage. This is a job for a micro soldering expert.

They may be able fix the home button, so that it works again, but will probably not detect fingerprints any more. Sometimes the IC Turtle chip gets dislodged from the home button flex. There is also a Bluetooth Home button work around that can be installed, it is called the JC home button, google it o find out more.

Thanks! I didn't realize this existed. I have tried an external Home Button dongle and it didn't fix the issue. I believe the phone is ignoring external devices while in this weird recovery mode. Do you have any idea if the JC home button fix will run into the same issue? Would the device also ignore bluetooth input?

You may try a force restart to see if it works, follow the step-by-step guide:

  • Press and hold HOME + POWER button for 10 seconds and then release the buttons. You will see that your screen turns OFF.
  • No again press and hold HOME + POWER button again for 8 seconds until you see Apple Logo and then release the buttons after the iPhone screen turns OFF.
  • Now again press and hold, HOME + POWER button for 20 seconds, then only release the POWER button and still hold the HOME button.
  • After 20 seconds, release the HOME button and your iPhone X/8/8 Plus shall start in normal mode as usual.

Hope this info helps you!

You have to use the volume buttons and power button to force restart the 8s. What's more the home button is broken. Thanks for the response.

you could try connecting a home button from a different phone, it may then give you the on screen home button.

On iPhone 8, replace the home button from other devices, the home button will still not work. Unless you replace it in the Apple.

If you only want to have the return function, you can try this article: https://www.etradesupply.com/blog/iphone...

You can’t. Only apple can pair the button to the logic board.

von

The only thing you loos if its not don by apple is touch ID

von

Not true. Starting with the iPhone 7 line, the button works differently from other models. There are bluetooth options but you would have to be able to pair it and that's not possible in setup. Going to Apple is the only way to fix this.

hardware lock by apple
