    • Power down your device.

    • Use your plastic opening tool to wedge between the seams around the sides of the device. Pry open each side, one at a time. For some a finger nail may be best. The case comes up quite high to the glass.

    • Do not pry near the USB port at the base of the device as you may crack the rear panel.

    • Work fingers around the seam between device and back cover. Use your plastic opening tool and fingers to separate each side until device and back cover are completely apart.

Step left out. video on Youtube show use of craft knife as first step to get into very tight case fitting, then the use of plastic pry tool to go around releasing the backcover.

I didnt read the comment about it being tight and using a knife, until I had damaged the prying tools :-(

I had very little problem prying of the back of my nexus 7 2012. Once you get the first corner done, the rest comes pretty easy.

I ended up using an old hotel keycard as a spudger and it worked fine.

I needed access to the cables that connect the touchscreen to the motherboard so that my touch screen would respond.

Worked like a charm!
