  • Be careful when removing the adhesive not to pry the small connectors at the base of the board.

its better to peal the white sticker off the battery without damaging it, then use that as a handle to pull the command tape totally loose off the left side. very similar to removing an Apple battery (but actually works). much safer than prying the battery loose with a tool
