You can also possibly try a torx bit as well or a flathead, I managed to get a stripped logic board screw out by using the torx bit you would usually use on the bottom screws


Thanks, where can I fix screw extractors small enough for an iphone? heh


Hello? Id like to know where I can find them I honestly ant find anything...


Just drill them out with a drill bit as big as the head of the screw
