How to open an apad

OK I tried to open my aPad. I used a guitar pick, and I found the easiest place to get it between the edges is next to the rocker (menu/home) switch, as the plastic flexes most there. I then used the pick and slid it round to the non-button end where it "popped" half open. What was happening was I was breaking the tiny screws out of their sockets.
The black lining and plastic film are glued to the glass screen, and these screws are under the black edges. This isn't great news. What ever you do don't try and pull the film off the glass past the black edge, I now have a permanent "stretched glue crystal" corner in the top left on my screen. Sad
If you are going to do this, all you want is to carefully peel back the black plastic to expose the screws, and then I'll update you if I get any further.

Used my fingernail to pry up the front by camera, then used my id which is stiff plastic and slid around the edges , while carefully applying upward pressure . and i do mean carefully, by the front charging port is the touch screen cable i got lucky it popped open with out breaking.

There are screws under closer examination, the size of eyeglass screws. I will have to remake  the snaps so that it locks together .
