  • If this is the first time, it will be hard to separate the back cover from the tablet.

  • The clips are approximately 5 cm apart. While working around the device, the clips will make a dislocating sound when disconnected.

It is not necessary to remove just the white part under penalty of breaking the pins, it is necessary to remove the back with the colored outline of the tablet

  • Remove the back cover once all links have been separated.

  • Be careful when touching any of the internal components of the tablet.

This is the wrong method to open it! You have to open it beetween the front-Display and the golden rim.

This is very misleading and not the correct way to open this device. This will damage the backplate and the antennas that are glued together. The proper way to open this tablet is from the front taking the LCD out of the frame.
