Make sure all screws are taken out. There is one that is under the seal. That one is usually the one that people forget to take out.

You prob missed a screw. Look at the guide on here and make sure you did it correctly.

Or just jerk it real hard. It'll come off

I don't know why no one will answer this question clearly, this is the third forum I've seen without it. There is a HIDDEN screw, even sneakier than the ones under the black square pieces - it's underneath a BLACK STICKER WITH TEXT ON IT, right on the bottom of the PS3, hiding in plain sight. You have to PEEL OFF THE BLACK STICKER to reveal another of those black plastic squares, which after removed will reveal the final screw. (caps for clarity)

I've seen "remove the seal", but that doesn't convey what you're looking for. Again, on the bottom of the PS3 where all the other screws were, close to the center, there's a black sticker with text on it. You have to peel that sucker off, and voila. You're not crazy, I'd guess probably 82% of people fall for this like I did, because it's a total curveball. Like a trapdoor under a rug.
