Use your hot iOpener to heat up all four edges of the front panel. Let the iOpener rest on each edge for at least 90 seconds, microwaving for 30 seconds at a time as needed.

Take your time and ensure the entire bezel is warm. The more time you spend on this, the less time you'll spend picking out glass shards in the next steps.

Once all of the adhesive is warmed, pick out the edge with the largest uncracked section of glass.

Try using a suction up to pull up on this section, and then wedge a guitar pick beneath the glass.

If the glass is too badly cracked for the suction cup to grab, apply more heat and force the pick in, careful not to damage the LCD.
