    If these can't help, there's a lot more companies showing if you search on Google.

    The technique is bit different though the idea is the same; they new ones have hooks on the sides so it's a lot hard to open; you risk the whole thing getting bent out of shape; as with the procedure, just use the plastic cellphone openers; do it slowly and carefully. Don't try to lever the whole thing apart; it's not that easy anymore.
