Changing The iPod Nano 1st Gen Battery

There are lots of instructions in web pages and videos for swapping out your old iPod nano battery. I sourced this one from ConsoleZombie: . The instructions in this video describe how to separate the bottom metal case from the top black material by starting at the side of the case.
I thought it might be easier to pry open the bottom near the USB connector. Unfortunately, I started prying at what I thought was the metal seam separating the black from the silver part of the connector. Wrong! That is a single joined piece. You have to start prying at the bottom seam of the USB connector.
You may be able to see a few tiny gouges in this picture. That's where I made my mistake...
