Hi guys I wonder if you can help me. My friend broke his Wildfire S screen and asked me if I could fix it. I got a new glass / digitiser from eBay and replaced the screen. All look fine to me so I took it back to him.

It seems since replacing the screen the phone sometimes refuses to wake up when clicking the lock button, or when an inbound call arrives. The phone rings but there is no sign of life other than the ringing noise. If you then plug in the charger the screen will turn on and you can use the phone as normal. I've tried a factory reset on it but nothing seems to help.

I haven't replaced the LCD just the glass/digitiser, and can't think of a reason in doing so would break other functions of the phone. Can anyone help or suggest what might be the problem here? I'm a competent repairer and have replaced the screens on many Laptops, iPhone's and iPad's but this is my first encounter with a HTC.

I believe it is a stock ROM branded O2 - Details from the phone are ...

Android Version - 2.3.5
HTC Sense Version - 2.1
Software Number - 2.26.206.1

Kind Regards

I've no idea been trying for ages, I'd like to try a newer ROM but can't get the phone in to S-OFF.

I've done the whole HTC Dev thing and unlocked the boot loader etc, but can't find a stock rom / RUU that will flash to it.

And here's me thinking this site was going to be helpful and full of people who knew what they were talking about!
