Unscrew the four Phillips screws on the back of the PSP Go.
Rotate the PSP so you can see the top of the device.
Unscrew the two Phillips screws next to the volume buttons.
Use a plastic opening tool around the perimeter of the back cover to loosen it on all sides.
Open the back cover by gently lifting the right side, and rotating it to the left side (as if you were opening a book).
Use a plastic opening tool to gently flip up the left trigger connector.
Unscrew the lone Phillips screw holding the trigger in place. Remove both trigger and retaining plate from the PSP Go.
Use the plastic opening tool to gently peel away at the "Warranty Void" sticker. Start on one edge, as shown, and slide the tool from side to side until the sticker is removed from just the battery.
Gently pull the sticker away from the battery connector, just enough so that the connector is visible.
Wedge a plastic opening tool in between the connector and logic board, and gently pull the connector upwards.
