[* black] Use an opening pick to pry up the battery from the bottom.
[* icon_caution] Do not use excessive force or pry at the battery with metal tools.
[* icon_caution] You will be prying against the case directly above the daughterboard and antenna cables. Pry carefully to avoid damaging either of these components.
[* icon_note] You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener repeatedly to further soften the adhesive. The adhesive is tough and it may take a few tries to get the pick started under the battery.
[* icon_caution] Try your best not to deform the battery during this process. Soft-shell lithium-ion batteries can leak dangerous chemicals, catch fire, or even explode if damaged. Do not use excessive force or pry at the battery with metal tools.
