2002 X-Type hood/bonnet stuck on the driver side, easy alt. open?

2002 Jaguar X-Type AWD has the hood/bonnet stuck in the locked position. The interior release lever will release the passenger side but the driver side will not budge. Removing the driver side wheel well liner and turning the steering wheel all the way to the right reveled some things that allude to the possibility of a manual method to release the hood that doesn't require any cutting or drilling through the hood and making things much worse and costly. Any help would be great, as I have exhausted myself online, and watching YouTube videos of this particular problem in languages that are just too much to understand, and video quality that's lacking aren't helping. To put it mildly.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks for the effort, buddy. I ended up paying a friend $100 to come by and do that and a few more things too since he was down there and in the right place to look at some other maintenance issues too, but I do really appreciate your response.
