    Are you SURE that it’s counter-clockwise?

  3. Place the Playstation 4 Slim upside down with the side of the screw you just removed facing you. Pry up on the two corners that are facing you with your fingers. This may take a bit of force to open up and you will hear a fairly loud click when the bottom cover detaches.

    • Remove the bottom cover by sliding it towards the back corners and lifting up.

    It says to place it upside down, but didn't you do so in the previous step? I've been trying to unscrew the screw with my screwdriver that I got from here and if I had to had the system right side up, I'm afraid I might've stripped the screw from all the force I tried to use to get the screw out that will NOT budge. It didn't even move the slightest after removing the warranty sticker.
