Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

How to remove Rear Panel
Place the bottom of the tablet towards you.
Remove the two 4.1 mm screws near the charge port with a Tri-Wing screwdriver.
Start in the middle of the left side and insert a plastic opening tool between the rear panel
and the front panel assembly.
Carefully run the plastic opening tool along the left and top edge to pry the rear panel away
from the rest of the device.
Place opening picks along the side you have already pried open to keep the back panel
detached from the rest of the device.
Be sure to work carefully, as prying too firmly can crack the screen.
Using the plastic opening tools, continue to carefully run along the right and bottom edge,
and then lift the screen from the back panel.
