An iPod plastic prying tool is needed to open the back. Those tools are used to find gaps around the edges to open it up. I used both one of those tools and a knife to open mine. Ebay has tons of cheap ipod prying tools.

If your careful a small screwdriver will serve the same purpose as a plastic prying tool. But you are more likely to damage the case using this method.

Nope,the only reason I opened it at the time was to clean some dust that got into the screen internally,its hard for me to ignore such small specks of dust since I'm a clean freak with my gadgets lol

FWIW, here is a site I found.

http://tech.hexun.com/2011-06-14/130492947.html

I tried to post the Google Translated URL for the above page but the editor here didn't copy the whole address so the above is the best I can do.

Hope it helps

George

Another teardown - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1552822

Battery doesn't look too difficult to replace if one can be located.

Interstate Battery can make any battery for you as long as you have a battery for them to copy.
