A few things are important when opening an iPad; Heat, patience and good tools. Everyone has their own preferred method of opening an iPad. The most important thing is to make sure the iPad is preheated. This makes the glue soft and thus makes it easier to open the iPad. I always heat up the device to about 80 degrees celcius. This means that the you would be able to touch the iPad, but its to hot for holding it a longer period of time. The method I use is to open up a little gap on top, between the case and screen, of the iPad where there are no cables. I always do this with a hobby knife, although it is not recommended to use metal while handeling a device. After there is a little gap, I insert a guitar pick while slowly sliding out the knife. Once the pick is in just wiggle it while putting slight pressure to one side, and go round the iPad.
