So eventually you probably need to drill it out by using a drill bit slightly smaller than the screw and get at least the head off. I hope you will be able to get the OP-1 back in shape.

You might want to contact the people from FairPhone directly to see if they have a solution.

(4) After the phone shuts down, leave the phone sitting 6-8 hours (or overnight) without charging it. (5) The next morning, connect the phone to a charger and charge it back up without interruption to a full charge of 100%. (6) IMPORTANT: Leave the phone connected to the charger for 1-2 more hours AFTER your reach 100%. (7) Reset your iPhone: (8) Hold both home and power buttons until the iPhone restarts itself, ignore the "slide to power off slider", and let the iPhone restart itself.
