Title:

iPhone 5 Pentalobe Screws Spinning

Text:

I have refurbished an iPhone 5 into a "6 mini" housing. Done a few of these, no problems. Had to change the battery in one as it could of done with a new one, one of the screws wouldn't come out and now it spins (so not stripped) but turns to a certain point then clicks

any suggestions? don't really know what else i can do.

no access to the screw other then a screwdriver.

i've used a magnet to make the screwdriver stronger but it didn't work
