Edit Step 2  ¶ 

  • Work the plastic opening tool across the top of the back case to free the plastic clips.

  • The top edge of the back case is very thin. Pry carefully to avoid cracking or snapping it.

  • Continue prying down the right side of the back cover to free the remaining clips.

Edit Step 3  ¶

Edit Step 3  ¶ 

  • Pull the back cover away from the phone to remove it.

  • The back cover is attached to the battery with a generous amount of adhesive, so you may have to use quite a bit of force to separate the two pieces.

    • The battery must remain in the phone and not come off with the back cover or you will break the power lead.

  • Since the back cover is made of Kevlar, it can handle a fair amount of twisting and tugging without breaking.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
