What's the secret to the LCD shield screws?

I can't get the screws on the sides of the LCD shield off without stripping them. I've tried JIS000 and 00 and still can't get them out without stripping them. Are they 0000? Is there some secret combination I'm missing?

As penance for my ignorance, here are some pics of a phone:

I couldn't get the LCD shield screws off either they wouldn't turn. I went to a store here in town and he said his trick was to place the screen/part over the edge of a flat surface like a table or kitchen counter. I could get 3 of them off but not the other side. He placed it up against the counter edge and didn't have problems taking out the problem 3 screws. Try that next time. I know I"m getting a premium screwdriver set too mine aren't cutting it.

You need a 0.6mm Tri Point screwdriver. It is a Y shaped tip.

What happened to this phone that it is bent?

Why don't you have the screen off so you can get at the screws?

Also, you must hold a finger at the end of the screw for more rigidity.

Seeing that your phone bent in a cure there is a possibility that the screws got bent as well if you can find a small screw driver to use then use it. If you still can seem to get the screwws out go to you local apple store and ask if they can do anything to help you.
