I personally think that my phones screws were like superglued into the system. I cracked my screen a few months ago and have been saving up my money since, and I recently got the money and ordered a replacement and I was trying to replace it today, but I was having all sorts of trouble getting some screws out. Specifically the 10 ones on the frame to get the screen out, I got three out but then none of the others would budge at all. After about 2 straight hours of work I gave up, put my phone back together, and I am seeing if I can return the screen and just get a refurb from Apple.
But before I part I was just wondering if anyone had a similar situation and how did they fix it? I literally had every member of my family try with 5 different screw drivers, they arent stripped yet but no one could figure it out. Thanks again for your time, it is appreciated

Thank you for the reply, unfortunately I dont need a torx screwdriver, it is just regular screws that are extremely tightened onto the iphone. I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problem and knew how to loosen them.
