Keyboard drawing only 0.1A from charger
Those guitar picks really did a number when you opened the unit. Will post a pic tomorrow as of how mine turned out.

I used the following set from iFixit:

In particular - the thin plastic cards and the spudger. My goal was to avoid wiggling the spudger too much so that there won't be much pressure directly on the edge. It was more of a... sliding motion with the flat part instead of straight up stabbing.

I did start with Jimmy (metal prying tool looking like a dull knife) but the deformation on the edge was a tad too much for my liking. It should show in the pics I will post tomorrow.

The guitar picks in comparison look to have been noticeably more aggressive. I'm not sure how effective my "finger nail filing" of the edge would be in this case.

Pictures bellow:
You can see where I started with the metal tool and where I've left a mark:

Next was the USB-C port side and you can see where I was still adjusting on how to use the spudger. Right above the USB-C port you can see where I've stabbed it before switching entirely to sliding motion:

Everything else was a lot easier once the technique was in place. The marks on the side without ports are really small compared to the start:

Device: Pinebook Pro 128GB No:246 / MainOS: Manjaro ARM
Godot and Flutter - creating something can be fun with the right tools!
