Well, I solved it! Unfortunately, I had to sacrifice my housing. I used metal grinder to get the screw out. Thankfully, nothing in the phone was damaged, but i didn’t care about that because I swapped my motherboard into my parts iPhone.

Use a scalpel or a sharpish knife obviously with great care try to find a sweet spot on the screw that the knife will go into and gently try turning it that way, once u have a bit out try using pliers to turn it out…

U could also try pressing the screwdriver really hard/firmly and turning as u push…

Never needed to drill a screw out before

Stick the phone in the freezer for some time it should contract the metal and make it easier to remove.
