Step 1:

Circled here is the battery terminal you want to ground. The rectangle metal part shown on the body is what you want to ground it against. **Make sure the iDevice is unplugged**

Step 2:

Take a small screwdriver & touch the battery terminal and metal housing at the same time to ground. You may see small sparks and this is fine.

Step 3:

Now plug in the power supply & you will see the Apple boot logo, (NOTE: Make sure both of the screen connectors are plugged in the back of the iDevlce and that no cables were torn)
