You shouldn't need to do a battery pull after updating the OS. When you do pull the battery do it with the phone ON. It won't cause you any problems and hopefully will fix some.
There's enough room for you to get a small part of your fingernail in the space and pry the battery free. Like the back cover, it should come out a bit easier after you've done it once.
