glass replacement front screen, screw problems.

I am in the process of replacing the front screen to my iphone using the steps posted at this website. I got to the last two steps and I am incapable of unscrewing 3 of the washer screws on the side of the frame and one of the screws in the corner of the frame. I have no idea what to do and the phone is completely apart. Any tid bits on how to get these very difficult screws out?

Good quality Philipps #00 screwdriver. Very firm technique. Do not strip the screws.

You need the correct tools, it it worth purchasing the set the site offers or something similar, once you fix this phone you will want to carry out more procedures.

Applying a little pressure and a slow anticlockwise turning motion to get the screws moving,as brad said don't end up rousing the screws.

Get kitted out and your repairs will be clean and the risk will be far less.
