Nice detailing of the teardown steps but the phone shown here is a regular HTC Wildfire (HTC G8) and not the latter HTC Wildfire S (HTC G13). Apparently, the orignal Wildfire has two variants (A3333 and A310e). Each variant uses a different digitizer (the touch glass panel on top of the actual LCD). If you need to buy a replacement digitizer, verify if your variant has an IC on the digitizer ribbon cable or not. On my phone, the shattered original digitizer had no IC on the ribbon and when I replaced it with one that had one, the phone wouldn’t recognize the touch inpupts.
