[* black] Remove the card and re-insert it underneath the center of the battery, starting from top. Slide the card in as far as it will go, breaking up as much adhesive as you can.
[* icon_caution] Be extremely careful to slide the card '''over''' the front-facing camera and headphone jack cables to avoid cutting them.
[* black] Lift up on the card to pry the battery up from the rear case.
[* icon_note] If there is significant resistance from the battery when you try to pry it up, reheat the adhesive with an iOpener and repeat the previous 3 steps to break apart the adhesive as necessary.
