Yes, just like any other screw, as long as the correct bit is used to remove it, it will go back in just fine. Did you use a proper pentalobe screwdriver, or something else as a stand-in? Our iPhone liberation kit uses a standard star bit to remove the pentalobe screws, which strips them, which is why we then include Phillips screws to replace them.

Check if the new back cover is seated properly. Screw should go back in provided that its head is not damaged when you removed it. Use the correct screw driver to remove screws.
