With the battery out, we got started prying up the logic board...and followed its cable deep into the lower plasticy bits of the case.
Looks like we're gonna have to cut our way in anyways, so we're gonna take a shortcut and break a piece off of this Kit-Kat bar.
With the lower portion of the case removed, we get to work snipping off its plastic sheath. The entire case (except for the flexible hinge) is made of a hard plastic, seamlessly coated in soft silicone. Tough, but comfortable to hold.
