Please read the comments under each step. New developments have come to light. At some point, HTC revamped the build to damage the battery when opening the cover, and yet again if full removal is attempted. (So glad I bought this piece of junk!)
Again, on my Nexus 9, were I trying to actually remove the battery, it is double side taped to the frame. The battery’s casing would be further torn to shreds, should I try to remove it.
Good thing I’m just trying out a XDA repair for the “white/pixellated screen-150 decibel scream issue” that seems to be plaguing N9s nowadays, which involves cleaning the battery contacts. I may just have to replace it now, should it’s performance get any worse.
(It’s almost as if HTC wants the battery to be seriously damaged if replacement is attempted.)
Ditto. My theory is that ours were later model Nexus 9s produced after this ifixit featured this product!
Same here. Ridiculous!
