Push the rear face plate from the short side nearest the screws you just removed towards the other short side of the camera.  It should slide forward and unlock the clips holding it in place. Then it should be easy to simply lift the rear face plate up and remove it.

Using the nylon spudger, locate the red tips under the shutter button. When working with electronics, it's important to choose a tool that's ESD-safe to avoid accidental damage to the device. The metal spudger is great when you need serious prying power, but the regular black nylon spudger or a plastic opening tool should be used whenever possible.
