Touch ID Transplant Issue

Hey all, I have recently acquired an iPhone 6 with a shattered display and functional Touch ID. Since I wanted a clear view of my screen, I replaced it with another iPhone 6 screen I had from another device laying around (I am a repair technician and the replacement screen is original, if that matters). I succeeded in transplanting both the home button and earpiece assembly to the new screen with no damage, connected all cables, yet Touch ID is unable to activate every time I reboot the device. It is jailbroken if that makes any difference, but it was jailbroken with working working Touch ID using the device’s original screen. Nothing jumps out to me in terms of corrosion or other damage to display and other connection points but I could check closer as well. Thanks in advance!!

I am not sure that it being jailbroken would cause this. The main reason this usually happens on an iPhone 6 is a faulty home button flex. I would replace this first and see if it fixes the problem.

If you're referring to the home button cable that connects to the screen's backside from the home button, that was not damaged whatsoever during the process of moving it over. Maybe I'll try that though?
