iPhone 4: Fixing the home button

my iPhone 4 home button have been unresponsive and is confirmed a hardware issue. my back panel is actually lose and i can shift i slightly up and down against its metallic frame. so i suspect is some mechanical fault, or something loose that is causing the button to be not responsive. i can only get response by pressing from a certain angel or in certain time of the day!

so, now it’s fix! for the adventurous only.
unscrew the 2 screws at the bottom of your phone, push the back panel slightly up, it will move a bit and you can remove the back panel already. or simply follow the photo illustration from ifixit here.

then put a small piece of paper between the back panel and the area directly behind the home button. apparently that added pressure is needed for the home button sense to work!
