Slide the pick around the corner and continue to cut through the adhesive.

You can cut a bit deeper into the top and bottom bezel areas, but not too much more. The digitizer circuitry is adhered to part of the lower bezel; it is fragile and should not be cut into.

Leave an opening pick on each side as you continue to the next to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

Repeat the process until you have sliced around the entire perimeter.

Be careful not to insert the pick more than 1.5 mm along the long edges, or you will damage the display assembly.
