After the screws are out, just put something (I used a fingernail, but you might want to use something like a butterknife or a thin bladed screwdriver) between the silver front casing and the black back casing at the top front corner. Then gently pry until it separates. Do the same thing for the other top corner and the case should just pull loose. Be careful not to stress the cables connecting the speaker and the battery by pulling the back casing more than a few inches from the front casing (the battery and the speaker are attached to the back casing). The battery is held in place with sticky tape. Just disconnect the cable and gently pry it free from the sticky tape.

I finally managed to pull back the rear cover by inserting a thin piece of metal at the top of the rear cover. It snapped off by pulling it backwards and then downwards. And I soldered the connector back on. I only had to solder the 4 feet of the small metal shield, the contacts are just pressing on the circuit board.

Came apart eventually, click action!
Surface mount USB was a little tricky to remove, got there in the end and resoldered new part on.
If a Usb cable is inserted awkwardly the internal pins can be easily bent and damaged, rendering your device useless, good job i have experience with removing Usb's.
