Where are the locking clips? What direction do they face? Is it better to pry in one direction ? Why don't you mention how hard it is to release the back from the front? Why don't you mention that the power won't stay off because it is nearly impossible to handle the device without touching the power button? After a half hour, ruining two new pry bars and numerous gouges in my hands, I achieved one corner loose which would not propagate beyond that point.

I know this is 2 years late, but if someone else sees this then I hope it helps them.

When releasing the clips that hold the plastic back on you want to pry away from the screen and then kind of away from the device. It takes much less effort than you think if you are prying down and away.

Like I said I hope this helps. The rest of the guide is spot on. Have a metal spudger for the adhesive that is keeping the battery stuck to the device.
