I always have to do this because the adhesive strips never work because they can’t be pulled out at a flat enough angle. As you heat the back of the case in preparation for battery removal, also load some heat into some kind of smooth, flat metal tool to slide under one end of the battery as you pry it up. This makes for much less prying on the battery and much less chance of damaging it. It also makes for faster removal. The metal spatula tool provided in the fixit Pro Tech Toolkit, Pro Tech Toolkit, (an earlier version of which I use CONSTANTLY and is one of the most used toolkits I have) is perfect for this job.
Well spotted, thanks!
Perhaps you can find a video in which the camera man doesn’t shoot the back of the technician’s hand when he’s accomplishing the critical step in the disassembly.
Well, did you find out what the key command is for shutting down the battery? And would you please share it?
