Which direction are you placing the prying tool to release the clips; to open it up? With the prying tip facing up to release clips and then use to lift the back up as you move along the edges or face prying tip down to release clips which will then release the back to lift?

Also, using a black case, it’s hard to tell in the pic where exactly these clips are? Can you mark them on a photo?

Thank you! What seems to be an easy task is proving to be a struggle for my 4th Gen 7HD.
