What is a CR-VPH2 screwdriver bit
I'm working on the repair guide for the 24" A1225 iMac. The captive screw on the RAM access door is a Phillips screw, but strange one. It's shallow and a standard phillips does not work well. I found the correct bit in my security bit set. It's a CR-VPH2. I can't find a wiki that explains just what this is or the initials stand for and don't want to put something in a guide that I am uncertain of. I believe the last part stands for Phillips Head #2 but I don't know what the rest is for. Anybody know?
CR-VPH2 refers to a tool that is made from chrome vanadium. Abbreviation of CR-V on tools makes referrence to that "Chrome Vanadium which is used for many different types of tools because when heat-treated it has excellent properties such as strength, toughness, and resistance to wear and fatigue" and you are correct that PH2 refers to Phillips Head size number 2. Good Luck with your project and I know that your project will work out much better for you since you gained this knowledge ;-)
