HTC ThunderBolt Teardown: Display assembly - Back
The HTC ThunderBolt's digitizer and display screen are held together with strong adhesive. You'll need a heat gun and a lot of patience to separte them.
As I want to reassemble this phone in working condition, I'm not going to risk dissecting these components any further.
