In the following steps, you will be using a microwave to heat the iOpener, an insulated bag that will transfer heat to the adhesive strips around the iPad's screen.
We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk stuck to the bottom of the microwave may end up stuck to the iOpener.
Place the iOpener in the microwave and microwave it for one minute on the highest power setting.
Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair procedure. We recommend waiting at least two minutes before reheating the iOpener.
If you have not heated your iOpener for some time, or this is the first time you are using the iOpener, we suggest microwaving the bag wrapped in a damp paper towel. This will prevent the contents of the bag from burning in the event of over-microwaving.
If you're removing a cracked screen, covering the glass in clear packing tape will hold it together while you work and minimize the mess.
Lay the iOpener flat on the right edge of the iPad, smoothing it out so that there is good contact between the surface of the iPad and the iOpener.
Let the bag sit on the iPad for approximately 90 seconds before attempting to open the front panel.
There is a small gap in the iPad's adhesive ring in the upper right corner of the iPad, approximately 2.0 inches (~5 cm) from the top of the iPad. You are going to exploit this weakness.
Insert the tip of a plastic opening tool into the gap between the front glass and the plastic bezel. Just insert the very tip of the opening tool, just enough to widen the crack.
It may require some force to get the wedged tip of the opening tool between the glass and plastic. Work patiently and carefully, wiggling the plastic opening tool back and forth as necessary.
