    Sears/KMart sell a Craftsman screw driver, that includes Phillips, Straight, and Torx of various small sizes, including Phillips 0 and 00.

    Any home depot or lowes sells the husky screw driver set and they also have the torx ones as well. They run about 6 bucks and are amazing to have around the house.

    Does anyone know where I can find a 5 pointed star screwdriver for the new iPhone 4 screws?

    I read several posts about these new screws being Torx (6 pointed star) screws but they are not. I have T4 and T5 Torx screwdrivers and they are not the same pattern as the new screws.

    Just do what I did. I filed down one of my small flat head screw drivers to fit the screw worked like a charm. Then I replaced the torx screws with regular Phillips screws. No More Torx

    I found this on eBay and I'm waiting for the seller to confirm that it will work.

    If not, I might just do what you did. Where did you get the replacement Phillips screws? Do you have a link that you can share? Thanks!

    Radio Shack is great!

    I just walked in and said I wanted that size, but I did not want to buy a whole packet of different sizes.

    The man reached under the desk and pulled out a couple of their tools. I found 4 I liked and gave him a dollar for them. I'm sure you can just ask them for that specific screwdriver and they might just help you out.
