Which screwdriver is needed for new iPhone 4 screws?

History

Hi,

The latest iphone 4 and serviced iphone 4 use new screws to attach the rear pannel. It's the 2 screws on the bottom side.

It used to be a standard philips screws, and it's now a star shaped screws, probably torx plus type.

My question is so: what is the exact type of screwdriver needed to open those screws?

I take it that this link doesn't work for you?

It says that this unit needs a Phillips #00 driver to remove these screws.

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??
