    • Use a suction cup to lift the back cover and insert an opening pick into the slot created.

    • Move your pick carefully from corner to corner. Leave a pick at each corner once it has been freed to prevent the cover from re-adhering. Repeat for all 4 corners.

    • On the photo opposite three corners have been released, with one corner remaining to be able to completely remove the glass.

    • Be careful not to damage the fingerprint reader connector when opening the back cover. Disconnect it following the instructions in the next step.
