      Glad to explain for you!
      Firstly you should disassemble the rear camera module. The steps are the same with what this post inlustrated. After removing the rear camera module, you can see a metal bracket on the camera slot. You need to pry up the bracket from camera slot. Then push the broken glass out.(Please be careful here, do not bend the rear housing.) Replace the broken one with a new one and use glue to fix around the glass edge. Then put the bracket back and reassemble your phone according to the steps in the reverse order in this post.
