LG G Pad 10.1

To remove the back panel of the device, start by attempting to fit the plastic opening tool in the crease between the screen and the back panel of the tablet.
You can use your hands to push against the corners of the device to attempt to make the gap larger for your plastic opening tool to fit in. If you are replacing your screen because it is damaged, it may be useful to pick away at some of the glass to expose the clips in the edges of the plastic.
Insert the corners of your plastic opening tool into the slots that are on the very outside edge of your device to start disconnecting the panel.
Once the edge of your device's panel is separate from the screen, continue moving around the outside of the device while continuing to pry the two pieces apart from each other.
Insert another plastic opening tool (or a similar tool) between the screen and the back panel on the opposite side of the device to hold it open.
There is a piece of double sided tape on the back of the battery holding it in place. Pull the battery with enough force to pull it apart from the tape.
Remove the five 2 mm Phillips #000 screws securing the motherboard.
The silver EMI shield may come off during this step. Just set it aside until reassembly.
Remove the two 5 mm Phillips #000 securing the motherboard,
Disconnect the cable from the battery to the motherboard by grabbing the cable and pulling upwards.
Using the spudger, pry up the connector on the motherboard from the back camera to disconnect it.
Then move to the front camera towards the end of the motherboard and disconnect that by using the spudger to pull up on the clip.
Now that all of the wires and screws are disconnected, use the spudger or a prying tool on the bottom corner of the motherboard to release it from one of the clips holding it in place.
Once the corner is removed, repeat the same action at the far end of the motherboard to release the second clip.
