Drag to rearrange

We should now have removed the 2 big flex cables attached to their respective mutual boards, the 2 antenna wires and the main logic board.

We can now start the process of removing the battery. Using a flat plastic pry tool, pry up the edges of the battery and work your way to the middle from all sides.

Be careful to not bend the battery too much. Another method is using two long thin, flat plastic pry tools to "cut" the adhesive, and pry between the battery and body of the phone starting at the USB end. Do not risk a lithium fire by poking a hole in the battery!

When reassembling, you could use a counter top or something flat to flatten the battery back out.

The third pic is what we should have after the battery is removed.
