Slide you back cover on all the way. Push down very firmly on the back cover and slide it down towards the screws all the way. Even little, imperceptible movement will help. This will release the pressure on the screws so they can come out easily. If this causes the heads of the screws to show even a bit, you can use tweezers to continue turning and removing the screws.

thank you so much this really helped and was really easy to removed the stripped screws.

I used a piece of scotch tape over the stripped screw and after repositioning the tape two more times worked the screw out without having to use any force.
