    • Use plastic opening tool to carefully pry the battery out off of the frame.

    • Replace battery with a new +3.7V=19Wh Li-polymer Battery Pack C11P1328.

    There may be some double-stick tape helping to hold the battery in place, so do not be surprised if you hear the tape being pulled away from the batter as you pry.

My tab didn't turn on (stuck in booting limbo), didn't want to wait for a month or so till the battery dropped to 0%, so I tried this method instead. Done everything correctly. I'm sure I didn't screw up. Tablet won't start again (not even charging). I'm not sure if is either the faulty battery or the chipset attached to it. Either way, is a crappy tablet, never happened to lose a device so easily after a DIY repair. This would never happened if only Asus did insert reset buttons on their devices (or a soft reset button sequence). Will never buy an Asus tablet again.
