Step Lines

-[* black] Heat an iOpener.
-[* black] Lay the warm iOpener over the rear case, over the edge of the battery that borders the logic board.
+[* black] Reheat the iOpener in the microwave for 30 seconds.
+[* icon_caution] Remember to be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair procedure. Wait at least two minutes before reheating the iOpener, and never microwave it for more than 30 seconds.
+[* black] Place the heated iOpener in the center of the back of the iPad. Let it sit there for 90 seconds to soften the battery adhesive.
+[* black] Move the iOpener to the right (away from the rear-facing camera), and let the iOpener sit for another 90 seconds.
+[* black] Finally, move the iOpener to the right-hand edge of the iPad for 90 seconds.
+[* icon_note] You will likely need to repeat this step several times throughout the rest of the procedure to ensure the adhesive remains soft.
+[* icon_note] The iOpener may cool significantly between sittings—if it does, reheat for another 30 seconds between each position.
