As you proceed with separating the adhesive, you might need to re-apply heat to each edge before you can slice the adhesive securing it.

Additionally, you can use multiple opening picks for this process, leaving one in place on each side after you finish slicing to prevent the adhesive from re-adhering as it cools.

Slide the opening pick along the left edge of the phone to slice through the adhesive securing the rear panel.
