This is by far the hardest step, if your Nook is like mine. There was a line of rubber cement around the Nook under the cover. If you have trouble removing the cover, do not be afraid to dig deep with your plastic prying tool. BTW, do not try this without the plastic prying tool!

This is an awesome step by step guide detailing each step along the way for battery replacement. The only discrepancy that I saw is that it says at the top of the guide that a T6 torx is a necessary tool to replace the battery when only a T5 torx is needed for this job. There is a 4000mAh replacement battery available for under $20 here: http://www.mpfproducts.com/bna-b0002-bat... for those interested. It even comes with all of the necessary installation tools.
