    Default Removing the metal cover...

    Six hours and 10 minutes, still trying to take the iPhone apart... this metal cover is not coming off. I've disassembled and unlocked one already, but that one came apart much easier than this one. Any tips? I'm using guitar picks. Getting pretty desperate and starting to damage the phone. -_- Could wait for the "software lock", but I'm not holding my breath on that.

    The left part of my metal cover was difficult to come off and at the end i have to force it off. Broke the left catch that holds the screw. Just ordered the replacement part. the effort is worth it.

    A Blendtec blender is much more satsifying... and more efficient at removing the covers
