    I would take a look at the ribbon cable on the display that connects to the Touch ID sensor, could be loose or broken.

    The i5s main board and home button have to stay together. They both share an encryption key for the purpose of touch ID. Its a security feature.
    So the main board from your phone has to stay with is home key and visa versa. If you switched boards but not home keys then that will not work. You must keep them together.

    It will not work. This is for your own safety

    It's not compatible with a different motherboard. This is to prevent stolen phones from being "Gutted" then put back together. That's what I read anyways...

    In essence it should, however, I'm unsure if that is as simple as it sounds. If they're disconnected from each other, I'm not sure if there will be complications. I'd seriously contact an Apple technician.
