Delete the second paragraph above. I had confused the top and bottom of the ipad. Do pay attention to the direction in which you slide the pick. It MUST be toward edge from camera, not home button. Sorry.
The iOpener is, well, sort of silly. I used it for a while by immersing it in a pot of water regulated at 180 F, which worked, but I ultimately found it far faster to use a hair dryer. I do have an inexpensive IR thermometer which seemed to indicate that the adhesive softened sufficiently when the outer surface of the ipad display edge registered about 140 F. That said, the reflectivity of the outer surface is probably not suitable for reliable temperature indications with an IR thermometer. Just be patient. If you don’t have an IR thermometer, just heat the surface until it is almost too hot to the touch.
Also note the instructions are VERY different for the WI-FI vs. the Cellular version when attempting to release the adhesive along the bottom (home-button) edge. In one case (on left side) you are to cut towards the center, in the other case you are to cut away from the center. I ended up cutting the right-side cellular antenna cable because I didn’t pay close enough attention here.
I broke the “small antenna cable”. Should have paid more attention to the fact that the LTE model is different from the WI-FI model. I have the LTE version. Oh well. I didn’t discover the break until reassembly so we’ll see what I’ve lost.
Aside from a few missed screws, very nicely done. And I suspect that if one didn’t realize the need to remove those screws, sh/e probably shouldn’t be attempting the job in the first place. :) (I noted the comments after completing lens removal.)
