LOL this is actually a lot simpler task than many of you may think. I repair my friends old ipod and have figured out a technique that gives you few to no scratches/chips on your bezel at all. Here we go: -OK this is one of the biggest steps right here...use a credit card, or anything else soft, to create a very small gap between the bezel and the back itself. Remember you only need a tiny gap, one small enough to fit the end of a tiny flathead into. - find a very small flat head, (or any thin, flat metal tool)...i myself have a "2.5x40" flathead lying around, and I always prefer it best. -once you've got that tiny gap, insert the screwdriver(or tool of choice). Now here is the trick! Many people just begin prying left in right in a relentless fury to pop the thing open...bet there is a way to do it very easily...if you can, angle it up a bit and slowly slide the screwdriver deeper into the ipod, far enough so than you are between both the bezel and back fully. Be sure to slide at least the tip of the utensil in so that you will get no scratches -next angle your inserted screwdriver down with force. Opening it with this method means means it never actually touches the outer edge of the bezel, leaving no scratches! The small chip/dent is left on the inside of the bezel instead of the visible portion. Note that your original back may(but probably won't) get a scratch or dent, but i never plan on using it again so i don't care. Here is a pic showing you the motion I am talking about: Please Register or Log in to view images -Keep using the screwdriver as a lever to pry the two pieces apart until you here one of the connections pop loose. once it has done so you can: leave that screwdriver in as a "jack, and use another to unattach the rest of the back...slide that one a bit to the side and continue using the same method, slide the "credit card around the edge(with a bit of force) to unattach the rest of it. -Once you've gotten a few undone, it should be very easy to simply pull the back off with your fingers.
