On reassembly, not that the camera under the display may be loose. Putting some pressure on the speaker while pressing up on the display should cause the top tabs to snap back in.
When it is plugged into power on reassembly, it should show a lightening bolt. If it shows the restart screen, likely the battery was not connected correctly.
It is really tricky reattaching the connection and sometimes likes disconnecting when the battery is put back in. There is actually a click when it is in correctly.
The second piece of black tape on the battery will be ripped when removed as it goes under the PCB.
By warming the tape with the iOpener, using the tweasers to start lifting it at the corner with the black triangle, and then using my hand to pull it, I was able to remove the tape in mostly one piece.
Note that the ribbon cable has adhesive beside the connector.
The tabs are two small bumps that are located roughly at either end of the speaker. Careful prying with the pick may help, but make sure you do not over extend the bottom of the display.
I recommend moving the supdges slowly to let the adhesive separate on its own.
Due to the display being hard to move, I push it far enough with the spudger until I was able to insert a pick to hold it while I shifted the spudger.
Expect to bend the end of the spudger as the adhesive holding the display on is rather strong.
