Using the metal spudger, pry open the panel with the metal spudger. Work you way around the whole device. The headphone jack is flush with the paneling so the panel must be moved away from the jack completely to remove. When reassembling, the ports don't fit into their respective holes in the back panel. Use the sharp metal end of the spudger and pull the ports to their slots.
