    Be very careful to pry evenly on the digitizer connector, and not on the socket at all. The socket and connector are very delicate and if you damage either, your digitizer won't work. To minimize stress on the socket, try prying under the short edge of the connector, rather than the long edge which is shown in these images.

    Throughout the following procedure, you'll be sliding thin plastic cards between the battery and rear case of the iPad, to separate the adhesive securing the battery in place. Be careful to keep the cards as flat as possible to avoid bending the battery, which may damage it and cause it to release dangerous chemicals. Flip the iPad back over and insert a plastic card between the top left battery and the rear case.

What a great guide! Using this, I was able to disassemble my iPad Mini and replace the batter for around $30. I used a heat gun (carefully, 10 seconds at a time) instead of the microwaveable sock thingy. Everything went perfectly, just like in the pictures and instructions. Thanks again!

For the re-assembly, do we need to apply fresh adhesive to keep the digitizer from coming loose?

It is a !&&* of work, but it works at least from being capable to do it and it went relativerly smoothly. But!!! Even if for sure I didn’t break anything, the iPad doesn’t work at all. It looks to me as for sure nothing went wrong during the change and repair process, that simply the new battery is broken, or is there any trick to get it running like in other cases were a battery activation process is required? I’m really disappointed after all this work and being so careful with each step during the process!!!

wait, that’s it? What do I do with the included adhesive???????????????????
