iPad Mini 1/2 Adhesive on 3?

Hello I was wondering if the iPad Mini 1/2 Adhesive strips from iFixIt work on the iPad Mini 3, I spent a half hour searching for a good adhesive but all the ones i've found people have said were bad or were the wrong type. Thank you for whoever could answer this, I just got an iPad Mini 3 with a cracked glass front panel, and have been searching/watching replacement videos for a few days, though, still nothing on adhesive and i'm currently covering every piece and every connector to the iPad Mini 3 to ensure I don't screw up and ruin this new tablet.

Thank you guys!.

Also additional question for the home button, will it be required to de-solder/solder the old home button/touch sensor onto the new digitizer front panel? (the panel from iFixIt without the working/non touch sensor home button/home buttonnot included)

Not many videos on it and the ones where I've seen are really hit and miss on answering, same goes for extensive googling and searching.

Thank you guys very much :)

iPad mini 2 and 3 are largely compatible, since 3 was designed at first but apple decided to hold it and release a stripped down version , the iPad mini 2 instead.
