How can I remove stripped Torx T2 screw?

I am using Japanese 3G vita (PCH-1100) and I was going to replace the 3G networking card that shipped from Europe. (to elimate SIM Lock.)

but unlike other reigon vita's, mine have a two of Torx T2 screw is tighten in 3G card.

so i bought dirt-cheap T2 screwdriver from local store and this thing stripped the screw :(

how can i take out this stripped T2 screw?

I tried rubber band method / soldering screwdriver to screw / put loctite 401 to screw head and stick screwdriver in to stripped head but none of this trick worked.

can anyone give me a advice ?

p.s: I got a spare screw so I don't bother if screw is destroy during removal.

Drill it then use vise grips, an easy out could work . Depends on how bad it is. Make sure the drill bit you use is of good quality

I solved the problem.

I used PZ-57 Precision Screw Piler to extract those stripped T2 torx screw.

room was enough to fit that Screw Piler.

this will depend on you having a Dremel and confidence what you will need to do is using the dremel make a grove for a flat head screw driver

i sugest stopping every few second so you do not over heat anything

I don't have a dremel right now. I'll try after bought one.

btw, is there a screw extractor for this kind of screw?

because I have to pay nearly 170 dollars for base dremel set.
