XDA-Developer user HCDR.Jacob has recently released this basic emulator Gingerbread port for the HTC Wildfire. The build is in alpha phase at the moment and therefore, only a few features are presently functional including calls, texting, touchscreen, USB, mobile internet and SD Card read/write. Many hardware features are not working including sensors, camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB and most others. Audio is working for tones but not for media playback, and USB storage is not functioning.
The developer will constantly be working to add more features and fix the non-functional ones and to keep yourself updated on the progress, ask questions or request features, head over to the XDA-Developers forum thread for the port. This build is not suitable for day to day use and should only be used to try the new interface enhancements introduced in the latest Android release.
To grab this ROM, head over to the download link below and flash it using the standard flashing procedure for your device.
