    • METHOD 1: Use a plastic pry tool to pop the back of the tablet off. Be careful the aluminum back is attached via plastic hooks.

    • METHOD 2: Access by removing the screen (suggested by Quantum Byte)

    • If like me you are unable to find a gap to detach the aluminium back from the frame so instead I tried accessing by removing the screen using a sharp tool (a metal blade such as a Stanley knife or a flat-ended spudger) as in the video (not my work).

    • Unfortunately, this is not as easy as in the video as the entire outer edge seems to be glued. Furthermore, the screen cracks v. easily. Since my screen was already damaged, I ended up breaking up and tearing the screen off. I am perhaps not best to advise on this method.

    • I suggest using a hair dryer/ heat gun to melt the glue sufficiently to make the screen detach.

Note that this guide does not work for the Asus T300 Chi which has an eMMC solid state drive soldered directly to the motherboard - you will need an eMMC reader and skill in removing soldered components to do this. Recommend taking to a data recovery professional in this case
