Features

  • Replace your iPhone 5's pentalobe screws with Phillips screws.
  • Show the world that you don't tolerate oppressed iPhones.

Contains:

  • 2 Phillips 3.6 mm iPhone 5 screws
  • 2.5" Phillips Driver
  • 2.5" Pentalobe Driver

Why Liberate My iPhone?

Removing the Pentalobe screws on the bottom of the iPhone and replacing them with Phillips screws accomplishes two tasks.

It future-proofs your iPhone.

In the unfortunate event that your iPhone needs repair, you will be ready to make any repair necessary. Phillips screwdrivers are widely available, whereas Pentalobe screwdrivers are not. In situations where getting the battery out of the iPhone as quickly as possible matters—such as after dropping the iPhone into water—you will be all set.

It sends a message.

When people see your iPhone in all its liberated glory, they will know that you don't stand for restrictions on your hardware. You believe that repair choices should be up to the owner, that repair should be easy, accessible, and affordable.

My Problem

iFixit suggested pentalobe screws are evil for my iPhone so I swapped to the free philips screws sent to me at no cost. I conducted the swap using the included pentalobe screwdriver, sent to me without charge and the included philips screwdriver (which wasn't free but not charged for)

My Fix

My Problem

My friend needed easier access to his iPhone and didn't want to always need to go looking for a Pentalobe screwdriver, (which he doesn't own) each time.

My Fix

The change of screws is very easy, just unscrew the Pentalobe ones, and screw in the new Phillips ones.

My Problem

Because I didn't want the freedom to repair my own device curtailed by Apple's proprietary pentalobe screws.
