iPhone 4 – 5-Point Pentalobe Screws – iPhone Guide
Step 1 - 5-Point Pentalobe Screws
Before we proceed, let\'s make sure you have the correct tools for the job. iFixit\'s iPhone 4/4S Liberation Kit includes: One 5-Point \"Pentalobe\" screwdriver One #00 Phillips screwdriver Two 3.6 mm \"Liberation\" Phillips screws Are you ready to break the shackles of hardware oppression and liberate your iPhone? Let\'s rock!
Use the Pentalobe screwdriver to remove the two 3.6 mm Pentalobe screws near the dock connector. The 5-Point Pentalobe screwdriver should only be used a limited number of times because it has the potential to strip the screws.
Peel and remove the two 3.6 mm Phillips screws from the iPhone Liberation Card. Both the Phillips and Pentalobe screws are really small. How small? See for yourself (highlighted in the second picture).
Insert the two 3.6 mm Phillips screws into the screw holes using the provided #00 Phillips screwdriver. Huzzah! Your iPhone is now liberated from those pesky \"Pentalobular\" screws.
