    but watch it because 6 Torx are poo, weak as piss and a bad idea to
    use, best get some tidy phillips or slot type replacements.

    Don't talk such rubbish, you should know better by now. Do NOT under any
    circumstances use a Philips or small slot-head driver, you WILL damage the
    screws. Get a decent T6, and as with any tool, you get what you pay for.

    Exactly how many pounds of pressure do you plan on applying to a cell phone
    screw?

    I believe that he for whom resistance is futile is suggesting that after
    removal the Torx screws or bolts - whatever the word is - are replaced with
    more robust screws or bolts of a different design, NOT that the wrong tool
    is used.

    Certainly, that matches with my experience that about 1 in 3 Torx things are
    fubared after removal. Perhaps its a deliberate ploy by phone makers to
    avoid us tampering with our phones, who knows??????

    Possibly, but that's not the way I read it.

    How much pressure are you applying? I take phones apart every day, and I
    can't remember the last time I damaged a Torx screw. Perhaps you are using
    a cheap and nasty driver, the driver head is worn etc.

    Its NOT a T6 driver as I've got 1 and it dosent fit. The driver head is too
    small for the screw. What is the next bigger size driver, T5 or T7?? Anyone
    know where they sell a cheap torx set??

    Thanks again,

    6 and 8 are the most common sizes I have seen for torx in general. I once
    bought a really good screwdriver set special order from Radio Shack, but as
    always their online search system sucks ass and I can't find it. Under
    their screwdriver section online they list ONE item. WTF?

    I also once found this set for $8 somewhere, but it's almost worth $20:

    OK, go to amazon.com, search for torx, then select the link for results from
    tools, sort by cheapest first, and they have tons of individual bits for $1
    or less.

    Cheers for that. I would order just the 1 driver if I knew what size, hence
    my original post. If I find out, I'll order 1 from amazon.
