Apply a suction cup to the heated edge of the rear cover, as close to the edge as possible.

Pull up on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the rear cover and the frame.

Depending on the age of your phone, this may be difficult. If you are having trouble, apply more heat to the edge and try again.

Insert an opening pick into the gap.

Don't insert the opening pick more than 5 mm into the phone or you risk damaging the internal components.
