Need help opening the trunk

Hi.
I'm new to this forum and would appreciate any help. Last fall I stored my 2011 Z4 E89 and removed the battery, by mistake I closed/locked the trunk.
Today, I wanted to open the trunk to re-install the battery but couldn't open the trunk. I tried boosting the car, using boosting cable to jump start and to get power to the trunk release switch but nothing got through. Someone recommended I use a booster pack but wouldn't that be the same as using jumper cables connected to another car? And if so do I connect to the same terminals.
Thanks for your response.
Mario

arm though the pass through, reach (or get a coat hanger) and find the trunk release emergency latch.

Search - plenty of similar stories, you're not alone....

Hook up another battery with positive to red post in Engine bay and negative to car's body. All the car electronics will be working and you can open your car.
