This is the set that spawned the repair revolution. We have honed its contents to be both your everyday driver set and your go-to resource for all the security bits needed to open consumer electronics.
Each bit resides in a removable soft plastic block with five friends. The driver body is machined from a single piece of aluminum, with a ball bearing mounted swivel top. The flexible shaft is great for stereo work or other large electronics where all the screws aren’t on the surface. The drive adapter lets you use these specialty bits with any standard ¼” driver handle or most power tools.
When it comes to precision bit sets, there is no better kit. If you want something that looks as elegant as it performs, look no further than the wooden case for the 54 Bit Driver Kit. This case is emblazoned with the Fixers Fist, reminding all the world that we have the right to open our electronics. We believe that repair is noble, and so should you.

Well I have an htc evo shift and ive been dealing with a cracked screen for about a year now and i decided it was time to fix it so i bought a screen, some screen tape and a cheap cell phone repair screw driver set and none of the drivers fit and i decided it was high time i got a decent screw driver and i found this one and thought "It has everything I will ever need!".
So the repair went pretty smoothly, had more use of a hair dryer than I ever expected. The only thing is there is one sector in the matrix on my digitizer that doesnt work but ive had to deal with a cracked screen i think i can deal with this.
Well Im not really sure if this is advice but this Driver kit fits right into any techies tool bag and has every bit you will ever need.

My wife just bought an 11" MacBook Air, and I'll be damned if I am going to wait until it breaks to take it apart. So I bought the 54-bit driver kit to ensure I am Pentalobe-ready. The wood case is beautiful and makes a statement "I not only have loads and loads of specialized tools, but I am proud of that fact".
High quality tools are a gift that keeps on giving.
If you can use precision tools with a safecracker's touch, your patience and diligence will be rewarded. The "feel" of a Torx bit that is one size too small is something you need your fingertips to just know.

The battery on my mid 2009 Macbook Pro was feeling old. It was time to replace it.
The repair went great with the help of the iFixit guide. It couldn't have gone any smoother!
Have the right tools! I purchased the 54 bit set from iFixit that allowed me to make quick work out of this project.

My friend had jammed his iphones power and home buttons, shattered the back of his phone and messed up the dock connector so that it wouldn't charge anymore.
The repair went great except for 2 things. I misplaced 2 screws so I need to take it apart again to find out which one I put where, the back cover won't close because of this. And also the power button replacement didn't work, I think it has to do with the bracket actually (not the button itself) but ifixit doesn't sell these parts so I got it from somewhere else. Otherwise the repair was easy to follow and fun!
make sure you know which screws go where. This is important

I was unhappy working on an old towel, laying screws and parts willy-nilly. I also needed to add more HD space into the machine in anticipation of lots of graphics work. With the right tools and materials, I went about this job.
Piece of cake - and really safe - parts in the right places.
I bought the Wooden-Box-Toolset. The only slight difficulty I had was removing and reassigning the silver bracket that holds the optical drive in the near to the camera-cable and the SATA connector. The collar on the all-in-one screw driver was too big and the driver had to go in at a slant. Removing the end-piece and connecting the bit to the driver body made it a tad short, for me. I had a slim screwdriver for those 2 small screws... a minor difficulty with laptop work.... otherwise, nice hardware!

The camera LED was continuously on. Made an appointment with the "Genius" (quotations for sarcasm) Bar at the Knoxville,TN Apple Store. After checking in, they canceled our appointment without telling us so we waited 30 minutes to be called. Then without even looking at the iPhone (out of warranty, I was ready to pay for the repair) they declared it unrepairable and offered to sell us a replacement for $199. Told them no thanks, I'll fix it myself, "genius".
Went perfectly, the iFixit tear down tutorial documents the procedure and is easy to follow. The camera LED was staying on, which is a common problem. It can ground out to the internal frame of the phone. I disassembled it, removed the camera and cleaned all the contacts, reassembled it and now it works fine. Took 30 minutes or so.
Don't trust an Apple "genius" (quotations for sarcasm) until you research the problem and know the likely cause and solution. Walk away if what they tell you doesn't sound similar and they jump to the conclusion it's unfixable without even looking at the device.

The Home button stopped working properly... the iPhone would act like somebody was pressing the Home button while it was playing music even when nobody was touching it...
The repair and the process was - interesting. Firstly,I have to give credit where credit is due... having the right tools for any job is essential and the iFixit provided the perfect tools... and the instructions guided me through the process.
I read the Home Button repair would take about an hour... but by the time I got to removing the top cover - somewhere around step 25-30, I was already in it for over two hours.
Then, removing the top cover took another hour just by itself... somehow my top cover was caked on and there appeared to be some kind of adhesive... it just took forever to pry one corner up enough to get the tool in. I think it took a long time partly because I was trying to be very gentle.
Secondly, the number of teeny tiny screws is surprising.
I had two problems that I didn't realize I had until it was too late.
#1) I didn't realize there are two different lengths of stand-offs.. I put the longer one into the wrong place and then it broke in half when I was trying to unscrew it.
That meant that I had two standoffs in the wrong position and that prevented two more screws from being reinstalled correctly.
I don't think this contributes to any operational issues... but I really have no idea what the long-term ramifications of this might be.
#2) The instructions clearly state that when reinstalling the top cover, it is essential to make sure the connecting cables are threaded through properly - so I took extra care to make sure I did that. #epicfail.
Unfortunately, I got all the way to installing those cables - another hour of reinstalling little screws and the logic board before I found out that in fact, I did not pull screen connectors through enough.
So, I was faced with a very difficult decision - a) uninstall the logic board again (another hour) or b) try to pull the connector a little so it would seat properly. Since one of the standoffs was broken and it didn't look like I could remove the logic board again, I opted for Plan B.
Now, at this point in the story, anybody who knows anything about iPhone repair is shouting at the top of their lungs, "No, no, no!!!"
Issue number three was one of the four corner screen screws was at a weird angle and I could not get the screwdriver to seat enough to turn the screw in - so that one just got left off.
Good news - bad news... the bad news is that corner is not tight... good news... if I ever need to get the top cover off again there's room for the tool now.
In the end of the end, almost everything works... the iPhone powers up; the screen is clear and bright; the home button works flawlessly - no phantom pushes... bad news is the screen is totally unresponsive to touch.
Final Analysis: iFixit A+ / My repair capability F-
1) get the plastic multi-compartment tub to put the screws in and label each section with the step number so you go back in the way you came out... whatever that costs in time and materials is worth it.
2) go slow, be patient... be prepared to walk away in the middle of the project if you feel you are getting frustrated and/or tired.
3) get one of those lighted magnifying lamps that you can look thorough... the more you can see what you are the higher your chances of success.

I wanted to upgrade the memory on my MacBook Pro from two GB to four. Also, I will be replacing the hard drive this week, but have not done that yet.
It went very smoothly. It only took about five minutes to take apart the computer and get to the memory. I put it back together and it wouldn't boot up, so I took it apart again to realize one of the memory sticks didn't click in all the way. Put it back together and it is working wonderfully.
Make sure the memory sticks are clicked in all the way.
