[quote name='cybrshrk;18625]Can anyone who has done this give any pointers on what to do/not do if others try? Is there a 'sweet spot' on the case that makes it easier to start opening there? Are there any parts that come off with the back' date=' like the power switch, that present a problem and should be noted before opening? Anyone recommend a "technique" for prying case apart that would reduce the risk of damage to the case or the innards? I'll probably use a guitar pick (my case opening tool of choice) but it would be awesome if there was more info about the risks.[/QUOTE'] The back of the case slides down away from the narrow end (there is a seam on the back that splits the cover). It is held in place internally by 2 strips of double sided tape, one on each side (nothing else is attached to it). Once you move it far enough to hear the hold of the tape break (it makes a sharp cracking sound) on both sides, then the back will lift off (or maybe slide a bit more first). I removed the tape after I got it off. I had a hard time breaking the hold of the tape, it is quite sticky. Once I got the gap wide enough, I used a large screw driver to wedge the back, further widening the gap, this caused the tape to give up. But only 1 side at a time. All of the connectors DO NOT physically connect to the plastic back. Do not use the screw driver to lift the back, just as a lever to widen the gap as it slides away from the narrow part.
