if they rotate but don't go out, mabe could you stick them and then pull. I guess (but am mabe wrong) that you used another screwdriver than the right one. You may order new screws and replace it, using the right one. This kit enables you to replace the current with philips screws iPhone 5 Liberation Kit

You may also screw in your power button harder. There are two screws that can easily go away while using your phone.

Hoping to have helped you !

thanks, vincent. I used proper screwdriver, and i think it happened because i rotated the screw with angle, i mean not exactly in the hole.

The problem solved now (i used suction cup to create tension, so screw started to come out).

Can you explain what screws i need to screw to fix power button?

i saw the manual, but its not all clear to me.


Glad to read that you succeded ! There is in fact only one screw (2 on the iPhone 4) shown on the step 29 of this guide : iPhone 5 Audio Control and Power Button Cable Replacement you may have to use à #00 Philips screwdriver. Keep me informed
