    Default [1.1.2 OTB] Any tips on removing rear silver panel for HW unlock??

    Hey guys,

    Just as title states. Barely got the black antenna cover off, and now having an impossible time with the silver cover. Even if I apply pressure with a screw driver under the panel I dont create enough room to slide even a guitar pick in!!! Any help at this stage is greatly appreciated!

    I'm basically following those instructions, but I don't have those specialized tools. Instead I'm using a small flat head screw driver and guitar picks.

    Near the bottom on the no buttons side was definitely the hardest clip for me. I started there, but I actually ended up getting one of the clips in the middle from that side off before the bottom one.

    So what you might want to try is try and get something even thinner (check your wallet for really thin cards), and try and run it all the way from the bottom up to the top of that side. Once you get that try something a little bit thicker like a guitar pick..

    I definitely wouldn't use a screwdriver as a wedge to pop the first clip, it's a bad, bad idea. I tried it and it screwed up my back case.

    As for tips... be patient and go with the guitar pick.
    I don't know how to do it decently otherwise since I screwed up mine.
