Which screwdriver is needed for new iPhone 4 screws?

Hi,

The latest iPhone 4 uses new screws to attach the rear panel. I'm referring to the two screws on the bottom side.

It used to use standard Phillips screws, but there's now star-shaped screws, probably the Torx Plus type. What is the exact type of screwdriver needed to open these screws?

These screws are P2 Pentalobe screws, requiring a P2 Pentalobe screwdriver. To open your phone and to put in standard Phillip's screws, get iFixit's iPhone 4 Liberation Kit.

Every sites I've visited, including ifixit, claim the iphone screws are either #o or #00 size philips. I've tried sizes down to #0000 and the tips are still to large. What's the problem??
