I will try harder I guess...
For those unhelpful posts that wonder why I do this, I ordered a spare speaker to try this mod, I would ever have needed to open it if it was not featuring the crappiest phone speaker I ever heard on a mobile or smartphone.
And the back case is just plastic which is quite flexible, the only damage is the border not the fact that it appears bended on the picture, and I don't care much of its aspect when I have a case for it... I am just afraid to break something inside the phone...

Its just a cover, worst case you break the cover. Everything else is pretty much protected behind a cover in there aside from the battery.

Finally got in,
my mistake was to attempt to 'pry open' it, i.e. to put a lifting pressure on the cover;
The two clips in the middle are definitely stiffer, and the way to open it is to actually push really hard directly on the clips with lateral pressure towards the inside of the phone (towards the nexus logo).

The glue is piece of cake
