[* icon_caution] '''Be very careful with this step.''' Take your time and ensure the adhesive is hot and soft, and that you've been through all of the adhesive with an opening pick. Don't be afraid to stop and reheat.
[* black] On the side of the iPad opposite the volume controls, you should have a pick lodged into each corner. Twist the picks to lift the glass slightly, separating the last of the adhesive along the display cable edge.
[* icon_note] If you encounter a significant amount of resistance, leave the picks in place, reheat, and reapply the iOpener to the problem areas.
