There are clips around the whole mid frame, holding down the back cover. Open all of them with the Opening Tool. When all clips are open, you can easily remove the back cover from the rest of the phone. We do not recommend to try to remove the back cover whilst you haven't opened all clips. They are very strong and you will risk to break the back cover.
