Insert the pry tool along the side of the device.  Pry gently until you hear clicks. Repeat along all sides of the phone, you will continue hearing a clicking sound as the frame begins to release. Gently pull the battery clip up (shown in photo 2).   Then, twist the frame slightly clockwise, as there is a little clip around the camera that needs to be released. Once the back frame has been removed, the motherboard and connectors will be exposed.

Get a heat gun, and heat around the edges of the screen. Insert three opening tools into the phone, between the glass and the silver frame. Be careful not to insert them at the bottom because the back button and the menu button break easily.

With the guitar picks still inside the phone, lift the screen up toward you. Do not pull it off right away, but leave the screen at an angle. Put the screen down along with the guitar picks in order to keep it loose. Heat up the bottom to loosen the adhesive from the back, and the menu button. Once that is done, carefully pull the screen  towards you.  Keep an eye on the bottom to make sure that the buttons are separating from the adhesive.
