Once the screen starts to detach from the device, insert the plastic opening tool into the gap and begin to pry the screen.

Continue prying the screen by slowly sliding the plastic opening tool around the edges of the device until the screen loosens.

It may take several tries to get the screen to detach from the device. Every time you circle the device with the plastic opening tool, be sure to put increasing amounts of pressure to release the glass. Since the glass is being replaced, it is okay when it starts to crack. This may even make this step easier.
