+[* icon_caution] Be sure you are prying up on the hinged retaining flaps, ***not*** the sockets themselves. Pry from the side closest to the edge of the iPad, so that the hinged flaps flip up towards the ribbon cable.
[* icon_note] The retaining flaps are highlighted in red in the second picture.
+[* black] It may help to first remove the small metal retaining clip held in by two screws, right at the corner of the iPad. This provides easier access to flip up the second retaining flap.
