Thread: Screws are impossible to remove

    Default Screws are impossible to remove
    I've been trying to replace the screen on my old iphone, but I can't even get out the two screws on the bottom of the iphone. The screws stripped after only a couple of turns of the pentalobe screw driver and the screw did not move at all. I have tried other kinds of screwdrivers, rubber bands, saran wrap, super glue, and soldering and nothing will work to get these screws out. Any other suggestions?

    Wow, tough ones huh? I have heard of people drilling the head off the screw.

    +1. Also there are extraction kits too. There are special kits for that. For screws that small I'm not sure but I think I have come across a kit for that before on Amazon.
