This is how the cable end look:

I found the right way to remove it, is by either:
1. you can push the nylon head in -OR-
2. rotate the cable until the slot head aligned with the holder bracket and you should be able to slip off through the side.

Good luck.

I have to try this again. I have my saturday project planned now. Gave up on this months ago. Also I have to find a screw to fix the dsi. Broke that trying to pry the cable out.
