    or you can buy replacement iphone 4 bottom screws and use a #000 phillips to get the star screws out then replace them with the regular phillips head

    sw-box.com sells the tool for $2.35 haven't gotten mine yet to give a description of the quality but it's pretty cheap. They also have replacement screws if needed.
