Secrets and advice on using an iOpener to get the glass off?
I’m attempting to replace the battery in my beloved iPad Air 2 and I can’t get any further in the process than trying to get the glass off. I’m on my 2nd iOpener after blowing the first one up in the microwave, and I’ve had the heated iOpener on the glass for up to 10 minutes and the glass has never budged.
I’ve pulled to the point that the suction cup pops off… nothing. Trying to use a spludger to pull down on the metal part of the case while pulling up… nothing. The how-to videos and pictures make it seem like this will magically happen, but it clearly doesn’t work that way.
For people who have successfully used an iOpener to do this … did it work that simply for you? Did you have to do something else to get this to work? Any other guides, pictures, or videos help?
