Cannot get cover open and damaged large too in the process
I tried to open the case on my iPod G3 to replace the battery. I could not get the case open and damaged the large tool in the process. (The sharp edge is completely ruined!) The small tool appears to be useful but is also showing signs of wear. Is there another tool that could be used or could I get a replacement. I know the instructions said it would be difficult, but it was more difficult than I expected.
I have this ipod, and I actually opened mine with a razor blade, then I wedged a thin knife in there once I got it open enough. Then I slid it carefully around the edges until it finally came open. You are right, it is harder than they make it seem. It took me about ten minutes or so to do carefully as to not break anything. Good luck!
