I really appreciated these instructions, thank you. I had the tools but because it was quite difficult getting the back open the plastic tools here weren’t much help. I had to use a medium sized flat head screwdriver. Upon prying there was minor damage around the memory card slot to the casing but that couldn’t be helped and didn’t hurt the operation of the TabA. The original battery inside has a thin layer of black glue around the edge so it took a little effort and patience to get out. I had to carefully use the screwdriver without scratching the tab interior, to loosen the battery. My tools came with a suction cup on a ring which was invaluable on getting the battery out safely. My TabA seems to work well now. Thanks again.
